The training school provides training on how to make a NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials) inventory for specific industrial sectors. Interaction with internationals students from all over the world will be accomplished as it is organised as a IAEA trainingschool​. 
Via case studies (oil and gas, rare earth and metal processing industries, phosphate industry, …) from all over the world, practises on how to map NORM sites and the measurement strategy that could be used are demonstrated and discussed. Field trips are scheduled to industrial and legacy sites where NORM related problems are encountered and to the Harbour of Antwerp were containers are radiologically investigated and a detailed picture on different types of NORMs, entering Belgium, is obtained .
