European Platform on preparedness for nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery

The mission of the NERIS Platform is to establish a forum for dialogue and methodological development between all European organisations and associations taking part in decision making of protective actions in nuclear and radiological emergencies and recovery in Europe.

Invitation to an Open Information and Networking Day of the European Radiation Protection Research Platforms

20th February 2018


The European Radiation Protection Research Platforms MELODI, EURADOS, NERIS, ALLIANCE and EURAMED are jointly planning an open information and networking day related to the EURATOM Call NFRP-2018-8 on February 20th, 2018, in Munich.

This information and networking day aims to present to the radiation protection research community the gap analysis and research priorities recommended by the European Radiation Pritection Research Platforms for the EURATOM Call NFRP-2018-8, which will be open for discussion.

The participation to this event is free of charge. For logistic reasons, registration to this event is compulsory. So please, send your registration form to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  before 31.01.2018.

A new version of the NERIS Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) is now available!

The overall goal of a SRA is to provide basis for priorities regarding future research & development needs. It is an instrument for creating synergies, co-operation and coordination internally between the NERIS participants and externally with activities taking place within the European Joint Programming for Radiation Protection Research and within other international forums.

The new version of the NERIS SRA has been elaborated during these last 18 months by the NERIS R&D Committee and the NERIS Management Board. Also, consultations with the NERIS Stakeholders have been made during the last NERIS Workshop in Lisbon notably.

You can download the new NERIS SRA here.

Publication of the first NERIS Roadmap

In the framework of CONCERT WP2, NERIS, as other European research platforms, prepared its roadmap with a long-term view and aiming to identify research priorities in emergency and recovery issues. This roadmap also contributes to explore joint interests for multidisciplinary and synergistic research between all research Platforms in radiation protection.

The development of this roadmap is based on two scenarios with societal concern related to NERIS issues:

  • „  Facing the consequences of a nuclear or radiological major accident or incident: how to optimize society’s preparedness, and short term/long term response?
  • „  Facing the threat of a radiological terrorist act: How to minimize consequences?

The NERIS roadmap has been elaborated by identifying research priorities in a long-term goal (0-5 years, 6-10 years, > 10 years) and in line with the updated NERIS SRA.

This document has been elaborated by the NERIS R&D Committee and the NERIS Management Board during last year. A dedicated consultation meeting, gathering all NERIS stakeholders was held last September in Brussels and allowed to finalize this first version of the document.

You can download the first version of the NERIS Roadmap here.
