The Joint Research Centre Geel is very proud to be hosting the 15th ATOMIADE in June 2015 in the "Kempen" region of Belgium. The region is endowed with excellent sporting and tourist amenities and is also home to a number of important research establishments.



As stated in the Asceri rules (Vademecum) only employees and their partners of the research institutes member of the Association of sports communities of the European research institutes can participate at the ATOMIADE. (Vademecum A.3.1)


Each participating research institute has to sufficiently insure their athletes. The sports clubs of JRC-IRMM and the organisation team as the host will provide third party liability insurance only.

Health & Safety

  • Health certificate may be requested by the organizers for some competitions.
  • First Aid Kit: the participants may bring their own.
  • Safety teams: The Red Cross will be available at all venues.


All the competitions will take place almost at the same time but not at the same place: therefore, it is very unlikely that a competitor will be able to participate in more than one single sport.
