Training course for colleagues from Indonesia

The first part of the training was held from September 29 to October 11, 2019 in Odessa, Ukraine «Fate and behaviour of radionuclide in marine environment, Advanced of emergency preparedness and Distribution modelling by physical and numerical hydrodynamic approach».

The training was organized by the Chornobyl Center commissioned by the National Nuclear Energy Agency of Indonesia (BATAN). The course participants are seven scientists from the marine radioecology group of the BATAN radioecology department. This is the third training course organized by the experts of the Chornobyl Center for colleagues from Indonesia. The first two training courses took place in 2016 and 2017.
