Nuclear safety

A workshop on Future Control Station Designs and Human Performance Issues in Nuclear Power Plants will be held on 8-10 May 2006 in Halden, Norway. The purpose of this workshop is to help identify the human and organisational factors associated with new nuclear power plant control station concepts. Workshop participants will discuss the impact of these new concepts on teamwork, work practices and plant performance. The regulatory implications of these issues will also be discussed. More information is available at www.ife.no/hrp-seghof-workshop/ .

Nuclear science

The Third NEA Information Exchange Meeting on Nuclear Production of Hydrogen was held on 5-7 October 2005 in Oarai, Japan. Topics discussed during the meeting included: hydrogen production research and development; hydrogen production using nuclear heat sources; the economic prospects for a hydrogen economy and nuclear power's potential role in such an economy. The proceedings of this third meeting will be published shortly. More information is available at www.oecd-nea.org/science/hydro/iem3/ .
