The final CORTEX workshop on the demonstration of the methods for reactor noise analysis against plant data will be organised on 21 & 22 June 2021 in a virtual format.

This workshop will

  • present the findings and lessons learnt in the CORTEX project from an end-user’s perspective
  • demonstrate the applicability and usefulness of neutron noise analysis
  • produce recommendations on techniques and instrumentations for core monitoring and surveillance to make nuclear units safer and more reliable

The event will be open to all consortium partners, other research institutes, technical and scientific support organisations, and the nuclear industry.


You can register to participate in the workshop and find more details here.



CORTEX is the 4 year-long Horizon 2020 project on “CORe monitoring Techniques and EXperimental validation and demonstration” led by Chalmers University.

This project has been running since September 2017 and will end in August 2021.

The project aims at developing a core monitoring technique using the neutron noise measured throughout a reactor core to detect anomalies, classify them, characterize them and possibly localize them. The technique developed within the project combines new simulation tools, advanced signal processing methods, and new Artificial Intelligence architectures for core diagnostics.
