The IEA HIA Task 19 meeting successfully decided on its final products presentation and determined some first details of the possible future safety task. More than 20 experts from 6 countries and two representatives of the US DoE met in Washington to accomplish what was planned for an earlier meeting in Rome, which had to be cancelled due flight cancellations caused by the the vulcano ashes.
The next meeting will take place in September or October this year possibly in Rome. Soon after this meeting white papers, position papers and a final report will be issued. Dissemination via workshops is under preparation.
The new task will likely be extended by a broader participation including new countries and possibly industry partners.
