NUGENIA Labelling
NOMAD was awared the NUGENIA label for the project idea identified as Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) System for the Inspection of operation-induced Material Degradation in Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) by the NUGENIA Executive Committee in August 2016. Obtaining the NUGENIA label is recognition of the excellence of the project. One year later NOMAD has become part of the NUGENIA project portfolio which provides details on running and past projects that were fully or partially launched with the help of the NUGENIA Association and its members.
