Approach

We are accumulating international and domestic knowledge in one place and subsequently conducting R&D and human resource development to perform decommissioning measures in a safe and reliable way.

Roadmap for reactor decommissioning work

In the “Mid-and-Long-Term Roadmap towards the Decommissioning of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station” (hereafter, “Mid-and-Long-Term Roadmap”) , the government establishes the basic thought process and main target processes when implementing the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.Based on current needs as determined in the policies and medium-term perspectives in the strategic plan outlined by the Nuclear Damage Compensation and Decommissioning Facilitation Corporation, R&D is conducted toward the application of the basic foundations, with an aim to securing and nurturing human resources. In addition, we are providing techniques to the sites performing decommissioning measures and contributing to the early realization of safer and highly-efficient decommissioning measures and improving the safety of nuclear energy.

Establishing opportunities to domestically and internationally collect knowledge

The “International Collaborative Research Building”, which is the core of CLADS and the focal point for international research and development, was established in the vicinity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. While forming a network for the interaction of human resources, at international and domestic universities, research institutions, and in the industry, we built a structure for promoting R&D and personnel nurturing jointly between the industry, academia, and government, in an integrated way, and we subsequently promoted decommissioning measures.

What is CLADS?

Strengthening international and domestic reactor decommissioning research

Inviting researchers from abroad. Aiming to conduct joint research with research institutions from abroad. In addition, we are forming and participating in WG, including overseas researchers and specialists, with respect to R&D required for decommissioning.

Strengthening the medium-term human resource development functions

In addition to holding collaborative lectures with adopted institutions, such as the “Basic Research on Decommissioning Measures, etc. and Human Resource Development Program” of MEXT, we are implementing initiatives for integrating analysis techniques in different fields and nurturing human resources.

Establishment of information transmission functions

We are collaborating with the National Diet Library and are organizing the information transmitted by the government and TEPCO in accordance with the classification of nuclear energy information by IAEA. This is communicated as the “JAEA Archive (Fukushima Nuclear Accident Archive).
