Modelling and measurement training course, 20 April—1 May 2020, Roskilde Denmark

The training course on “Assessment of long-term radiological risks from environmental releases: modelling and measure- ments”, 20 April—1 May 2020, Roskilde, Denmark is organised by the Center for Nuclear Technologies at the Technical Univer- sity of Denmark (DTU) in cooperation with PDC-ARGOS. The training course is co-funded by the European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research CONCERT.

The course is aimed at providing the participants with an under- standing of how to assess by measurements and modelling the long-term radiological risks from releases to the environment of radionuclides. Nuclear power plant accidents will particularly be in focus, but RDD’s will be considered.

The course builds on decades of international research work, e.g., in European projects such as ECP-4, STRATEGY, EURANOS, NERIS TP, PREPARE and CONFIDENCE, including unique experi- ence from extensive practical investigations in contaminated areas and laboratory assessments. It comprises a hands-on in- troduction to laboratory measurement techniques including state-of-the-art radiochemistry methods for determination of radionuclides that can not easily be determined. It also includes a hands-on decision support modelling session using a state-of- the-art computerised decision support system for nuclear and radiological emergency management.

The course will provide insight into many topics detailed in the leaflet:

SHARE - European platform for Social Sciences and humanities research relating to ionizing radiation

The mission of SHARE is to stimulate the integration of social sciences and humanities (SSH) in research, practice and policy related to ionizing radiation, including, for example: radiation protection, low dose risk, radioecology, emergency preparedness and response, dosimetry, medical applications, radioactive waste management, nuclear energy production, safety, NORM, site remediation, radon etc. To this end, SHARE structures and enhances dialogue at the European level and beyond, among the different stakeholders, fostering the sharing of knowledge and information among various disciplines working on aspects of ionizing radiation. SHARE was officially launched in July 2019 with the first General Assembly held in Barcelona after the RICOMET 2019 conference. It currently involves 24 organisations from 13 different countries.

SHARE organizes annual conference RICOMET. The conference is a unique opportunity to collect state-of-the-art, present and discuss projects or research results since it is an international, multidisciplinary and stakeholder driven event, devoted to academics, researchers, experts and civil society stakeholders involved in social science and humanities research on ionizing radiation. The conference includes scientific sessions, workshops, round tables, parallel meetings and is attended by participants working in the field of SSH and ionizing radiation.

A prospective Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in radiological protection was developed by a collective of research institutes and universities. This is the first time such a research agenda has been proposed. Six research lines of interest and concern have been identified: (1) Effects of social, psychological and economic aspects on RP behaviour; (2) Holistic approaches to the governance of radiological risks; (3) Responsible research and innovation in RP; (4) Stakeholder engagement and participatory processes in RP research, development, policy and practice; (5) Risk communication; and (6) RP cultures. These topics were developed through broad stakeholder consultation, in conjunction with activities carried out in the framework of various projects and initiatives (EU H2020 CONCERT programme, the EU FP7 projects OPERRA, PREPARE and EAGLE, the 2015–2018 RICOMET series of conferences, and the 2014 and 2016 International Symposia on Ethics of Environmental Health); as well as through dialogues with members of the European radiation protection research communities. The six research lines open opportunities to integrate a range of key social and ethical considerations into RP, thereby expanding research opportunities and programmes and fostering collaborative approaches to research and innovation.

PODIUM Dissemination workshop and EAN 19th workshop Innovative ALARA Tools, Athens, Greece, 26 and 27 – 28 November 2019

Aims and objectives of the workshops

Innovations in instrumentation, computing and information technology have provided numerous tools for improving our day-to-day lives. In the same way, new and innovative approaches to radiation protection (RP) could also be developed, in particular in the ALARA process. However, as with most new technologies, issues and challenges need to be identified and tackled. The PODIUM Project and the European ALARA Network have come together to organize a joint workshop to present PODIUM results, innovative ALARA tools and discuss broadly their use in advancing RP and ALARA.

Programme and practical aspects

NERIS Newsletter 17th issue

The pdf 17th issue (713 KB) of the NERIS Newsletter is now available.

This edition provides some feedbacks from recent events, information on European projects and announcement of upcomings events such as RICOMET 2019, ERPW 2019, and European Projects final Workshops.

EDIT: please note that the TERRITORIES final event will take place on 12-14 November 2019 (Aix en Provence, France).

TERRITORIES Final event (12-14 Nov 2019, Aix en Provence)

We are pleased to announce that the pre-registration to the TERRITORIES  Final Event (12-14 Nov 2019, Aix en provence) is open.

The final event, open to TERRITORIES scientists and to stakeholders, aims to:

  • Share findings from the TERRITORIES project, including technical guidance, published and to-be-published along 2019 on: https://territories.eu/publications
  • Collect feedback on two deliverables from the project, including one about existing exposure situations due to nuclear accident contamination

Both documents will be sent to registered participants 4 weeks in advance.

Please pre-register your interest for this event on https://territories_final.eventbrite.com
