The ISR invites you to take the 10th anniversary of the reactor catastrophe in Fukushima as an opportunity to take a past and future-oriented look at the effects and consequences of this severe nuclear accident.

On Thursday, March 11, 2021, there will be an evening event starting at 6 pm. This first part will deal with the course and significance of the accident, the current status in Japan and Fukushima as well as the consequences for the futher use of nuclear energy.

On Friday, March 12, 2021, starting at 3 p.m., the future of nuclear energy use will be discussed. This will include contributions on new construction projects, subsidy models and the EURATOM contract, new reactor concepts and the civil-military ambivalence of nuclear technology.
