You can access here to the 40th issue of the European ALARA Network Newsletter which deals notably with the Conclusions and Recommendations from the EAN-NERIS Workshop (Lisbon, May 2017) dedicated on the application of ALARA in emergency exposure situations.

NERIS Newsletter 14th issue

The 14th issue of the NERIS Newsletter is now available.
This edition provides some feedbacks from recent events as the 3rd NERIS Worskshop as well as the 4th ICRP Symposium and the 2nd ERPW17.

Detection of Ruthenium 106 in the air in the East and South-East parts of Europe

Since late September 2017, Ruthenium 106 has been detected by several European networks involved in the monitoring of atmospheric radioactive contamination. Ruthenium 106 is a radionuclide of artificial origin. It is a fission product from the nuclear industry. This radionuclide is also used in the medical field for brachytherapy treatments.

The very low levels of atmospheric contamination of Ruthenium 106 observed to date by European monitoring networks have no environmental or health consequences in monitored countries. Nevertheless, all European networks maintain a watchful vigilance on this presence of ruthenium in the air.

Memorandum of Understanding between Nugenia and the 4 European Research Platforms

171010signature001

On October 10, 2017 the 4 European Research Platforms ALLIANCE, EURADOS, MELODI and NERIS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the NUGENIA community which is dedicated to advance the safe, reliable and efficient operation of nuclear power plants. This MoU provides a framework for close cooperation between NUGENIA and the 4 research Platforms for the promotion of radiation protection research in Europe.

This ceremony took place during the last ERPW17 in Marne-la-Vallée (France).

TERRITORIES Workshops in Oslo - 14-16 November 2017

Within Work Package 4 (Strategic and integrated communication, education and training) of the TERRITORIES (To Enhance unceRtainties Reduction and stakeholders Involvement TOwards integrated and graded Risk management of humans and wildlife In long-lasting radiological Exposure Situations) project, one of the objectives is to identify and communicate to appropriate audiences the existing capabilities, key uncertainties, needs and knowledge gaps in radiological risk assessment and management for humans and wildlife in long-lasting radiological exposure situations. To reach this objective, a number of workshops will be organised through the 3 years of the project.  The TERRITORIES project has received funding from the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 in the framework of the CONCERT EJP [grant agreement No 662287].

 In 2017, two workshops will be organised:

  • Workshop one: Key factors contributing to uncertainties in radiological risk assessment, which objective is to discuss the key factors contributing to overall uncertainties when linking deposition and ecosystem transfer to human and ecosystem radiological risk assessment models, obtaining feedback from modellers, experimentalists and stakeholders on this subject.

  • Workshop two:Communication of uncertainties of radiological risk assessments to stakeholders, which objective is to discuss the implications and relevance of uncertainties in radiological risk assessments for different stakeholders and how these uncertainties can be better communicated, obtaining feedback from regulators, industry, scientists and “public/social sciences” on this subject.
    Download the agenda here

Both workshops will be held in Oslo, Norway, November 14-16th 2017. Since both workshops are strongly connected, people are encouraged to participate in both of them.
