NARSIS is a four-year European project of the Horizon 2020 Framework Program, the main objectives of which are to fill identified weaknesses in security analysis of external threats and propose recommendations for future legislation. The first three work packages are of a research nature, and the fourth and fifth are applicative in nature. The Jo┼żef Stefan Institute, Reactor Engineering Division (IJS, R-4) participates in the first four work packages and in the sixth. The first work package is designed to characterize physical threats due to various external hazards and scenarios. The second work package is designed to assess the main critical components of the nuclear power plant. The third work package is intended for common risk and safety analyzes, and the fourth is a comparison of different safety approaches for safety assessment in the case of the actual reactor. The fifth work package is a tool to support the handling of serious accidents, and the sixth to disseminate the results achieved in the project.

The meeting was divided in two parts. First, a General Assembly was held where representatives of the participating organizations were informed by the coordinator after the quorum check on the current status of the project. In the second part, a plenary session took place, where the heads of work packages presented the work done in individual sections. On the last day, the Coordinator reported on the upcoming financial reporting to the European Commission. For the international workshop NARSIS, which will be held in Warsaw in September 2019, we prepared the lecture titles related to the content of the project. We also agreed on the next plenary meeting, which will be held immediately after the workshop and hosted by the University of Warsaw.

The NARSIS meeting, which took place from 19th to 21st March 2019 in Delft (Netherlands), was hosted by the Delft Technical University (TU Delft). It was attended by dr. Andrija Volkanovski and dr. Andrej Prošek.
