Enhanced Safety & Operation Excellence

Focus Session

Tuesday, 29 May 2018, 14:00 - 17:30

Coordinator: Dr.-Ing. L. Mohrbach, VGB PowerTech e.V., Germany

The operation of nuclear power plants involves a wide scope of specialized areas of expertise, from materials to human factors. Beyond daily business, some background information from different fields of operational activities might not only be regarded as personally worthwhile but may also be well suited to complement the general knowledge base for nuclear.
