SOTERIA Final Workshop

25-27 June 2019

Miraflores de la Sierra (Spain) 






The European Horizon 2020 project SOTERIA (Safe lOng-TERm operation of light water reactors based on Improved understanding of radiation effects in nuclear structural mAterials) will hold its final workshop where the results obtained during the research work of the past 4 years will be presented.



The objective of the workshop is to disseminate the project final results among the nuclear research and industrial communities, and particularly end-users, as well as identifying future research needs. The workshop will serve as a forum for regulators, user groups, experts and industry, to exchange information and experiences on the issue of radiation effects on nuclear power plant components.



Presentations will be organised around the following technical issues:

  • Reactor pressure vessels (RPV) microstructure
  • Uncertainties in determination of RPV fracture toughness
  • Internals microstructure
  • Environmental effects on IASCC susceptibility of internals
  • Multiscale modelling tools

To cover these topics, the programme of the workshop will offer talks from academic and industrial speakers, as well as a poster session. Oral presentations and posters will be upon invitation by the organisers.

Poster Session

Poster size should be 119 x 84 cm (A0).

Authors are required to send an abstract (up to 300 words) to Marta Colomer (mcolomer@tecnatom.es) by 31 May 2019. They will be responsible for bringing their poster to the workshop and mounting it – boards and pushpins will be provided on site.


The full event agenda covering all three days and including times and confirmed speakers is available for download in the FILES section below. The current version reflects the status of 24 May 2019.


End-User Group Meeting

Following the final workshop, the last end-user group meeting will be held on 28 June 2019 at Tecnatom, Madrid.  The aim of the meeting is to present the latest developments of the SOTERIA platform and exchange with end-users about their needs and industrial application cases. A tour of Tecnatom facilities will be also organized.

In case you are interested in attending this meeting, please contact Julien Vidal (julien.vidal@edf.fr).


M4F PhD / postdocs event

The M4F PhD and post doc event is organised in the framework of the Horizon 2020 Project M4F (Multiscale modeling for fusion and fission materials). It will take place from Sunday 23 to Tuesday 25 June and will share venue with the SOTERIA final workshop, thus those who are interested can attend both events.
