Topical Day | Aquatic microbiota in or near nuclear facilities: insights, discoveries and solutions

September 12, 2019   Brussels (BELGIUM)

The aim of this Topical Day is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for exchanging ideas and discussing recent results related to microbial communities in or near nuclear facilities. Special attention will be given to the bioremediation of radionuclides released to the immediate environment, the design of countermeasures to overcome biofouling, and new methodologies in the microbial community analysis of aquatic biotopes. Presentations will be provided by experienced as well as junior scientists working in this area.
