(Innovative Cluster for Radiological and Nuclear Emergencies)


INCLUDING is a Cluster of RN practitioners, operators/managers of training facilities, demonstration sites, and testing workbenches and innovation developers (academia, research centres, industries, SMEs) structured in order to provide affordable RN resilience through advanced managing of training infrastructure and better integration of innovative solutions and methodologies in prevention and response systems for enhancing the safety of European citizens.

CEA French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission – Saclay site – LIST Institute (CEA)

The CEA LIST (Laboratoire d'Intégration des Systèmes et des Technologies), part of CEA Tech, is a research Institute specialised in software systems and technologies with vital societal and economic implications. The 700 researchers, engineers and technicians from CEA LIST perform research work in partnership with the major industrial players in the nuclear, automotive, aeronautical, security and defence and medical fields and thus investigate and develop innovative solutions corresponding to their requirements.
Activities span from conceptual design of systems to pre-industrial prototypes. CEA LIST promotes technology transfer and encourages innovation, particularly by assisting the emergence of start-up companies. The Sensor and Electronic Architectures Laboratory (LCAE) is a reference laboratory for the development of nuclear instrumentation for the main industrial partners of the nuclear industry (EDF, ORANO, MIRION…). The laboratory has a long expertise, especially concerning the development of fast electronics for passive or active non-destructive measurements, photon activation analysis for nuclear waste packages characterisation or Homeland Security Applications.
The Radiation Protection Service of the CEA Saclay site will be involved in the INCLUDING project and will be in charge of the training period involving a RN threat.

Activities in Including

Organization of a Joint Action in CEA facilities involving a one day training period with the purpose of operating in degraded radiological conditions: use of real contamination (99mTc) and use of irradiating sealed sources.
