Training School on “NORM inventories”

November 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - November 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Training School on “NORM inventories”  – In collaboration with IAEA ENVIRONET Project on Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM)

Here you will find the detailed program.


Scope: The training school provides training on how to make a NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material) inventory for specific industrial sectors. Via case studies (oil and gas, rare earth and metal processing industries, phosphate industry, …) from all over the world, practices on how to map NORM sites and the measurement strategy that could be used are demonstrated and discussed. Field trips are scheduled to industrial and legacy sites where NORM related problems are encountered and to the Harbour of Antwerp were containers are radiologically investigated and a detailed picture on different types of NORMs, entering Belgium, is obtained.


Target audience: Bachelor (3e year), master, PhD students and young professionals from all over the world that want to learn how to make a NORM inventory, when in a starting phase, for a given industrial sector no information on NORM is available at all. For students 2 ECTS credits can be granted. For the participants, basic knowledge and/or experiences in the nuclear field are required. Around 24 participants can be allowed in the course. Participants (organised in groups) have to prepare a poster on NORM in a specific industrial sector from their country of origin (more information will follow).


Registration: Please send your CV + short motivation letter (max 1 page) + recommendation letter from your home institute to in order to apply for this training school. There is no entrance fee, however, candidates need to apply at the latest on 17/09/2018.


Reimbursement options for travelling or subsistence: A limited number of participants can obtain funding (for travelling or subsistence); this is possible for: (1) participants from Africa, Asia or Latin America or (2) European (3e year) bachelor or master students in nuclear engineering. Mention upon registration if you would like to apply for funding (for travelling or subsistence).
