CONCERT First RTD Call for Proposals launched 02 June 2016

The European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research (acronym: CONCERT) has launched a first transnational Call for Proposals to support innovative research projects in radiation protection.

 Project proposals will address multidisciplinary and transnational research. The project proposals must cover one of the following areas that are equal in relevance for this call:

  • Improvement of health risk assessment associated with low dose/dose rate radiation.
  • Reducing uncertainties in human and ecosystem radiological risk assessment and management in nuclear emergencies and existing exposure situations, including NORM.

Submission deadline

Electronic proposal submission deadline is on 02nd August 2016 at 17:00 CET (Brussels local time).

Training course - 19-23 June 2017, Gomel (Belarus Republic)

house-RIRThe Training Course on  “Late Phase Nuclear Accident Preparedness and Management” is organised by the Nuclear Protection Evaluation Center (CEPN - France) and the Institute of Radiology (RIR - Belarus) in cooperation with the European platform NERIS on emergency and post-accident preparedness and response. The training course is co-funded by the European Joint Programme for the integration of radiation protection research CONCERT.

The course will take place from June 19-23, 2017 at the Institute of Radiology (RIR) in Gomel, Belarus.

The main objective of the course for late phase nuclear accident prepardness and management is to provide principles and practical guidance for the key players involved in the preparedness and recovery of living conditions in contaminated areas in the aftermath of a nuclear/radiological accident.

The course offers a comprehensive overview of the various dimensions and challenges of the long-term rehabilitation. It includes also practical elements for the implementation of countermeasures for managing long-term contaminated rural and urban environments, notably through the planning of direct meetings and dialogue with local stakeholders (inhabitants, pupils, local authorities, etc.) living in the areas affected by the Chernobyl accident.

The course is based on international recommendations and on the material produced and developed in several European and international projects: ETHOS, SAGE, FARMING, CORE, EURANOS, NERIS TP, etc. as well as the first results obtained under PREPARE and SHAMISEN programs. The course is made of lectures, practical working sessions, technical visits and discussions. It strongly relies on the practical experience of Belarussian organisations in the management of the Chernobyl consequences as well as on the first lessons from the management of the consequences of the Fukushima accident.
