Cooperations

EURADOS

EURADOS (European Radiation Dosimetry Group) is registered in the German Register of Societies as a non-profit association for promoting research and development and European cooperation in the field of the dosimetry of ionizing radiation.

Members of our association are:

  • Voting Members (institutions)
  • Associate Members (persons)

Its financial resources originate from sponsoring institutions, from voting members, from levies raised for activities organized by EURADOS (annual meetings, training courses and intercomparison exercises), and from projects funded by the European Communities.

EURADOS maintains a network which includes experts, reference and research laboratories, and dosimetry services. This enables appropriate specialist groups to be formed in a timely manner to solve problems or promote research identified within EURADOS or upon request from external bodies.


On 5 December 2013 MELODI, the European Radioecology Alliance (ALLIANCE), NERIS and EURADOS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to confirm their joint commitment towards the consolidation and implementation of a strategic vision of radiation protection research in Europe. This ceremony took place at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels, in presence of Bruno Schmitz, Head of Unit K4 “Fission” at the Directorate General for Research and Innovation.

MELODI

Multidisciplinary European Low Dose Initiative

MELODI is an European Platform dedicated to low dose radiation risk research. In 2010 MELODI was founded as a registerd association with 15 members.

The purpose of MELODI is:

  • MELODI will propose R&T priorities for Europe in its field of competence EUROPE 2020 Strategy.
  • MELODI will seek the views of stakeholders on the priorities for research, keep them informed on progress made, and contribute to the dissemination of knowledge.
  • MELODI will interface with international partners like WHO and IAEA.

European Radioecology Alliance

European Radioecology Alliance is an international network whose goal is to integrate the research programmes of partners involved in radioecology, more specifically in the field of the assessment of the impact of radioactive substances on humans and the environment.

In mid-2009, through the signature of a "memorandum of understanding", eight European organisations created the European Radioecology Alliance. The intention of the partners is, in the long term, to integrate all of their research programmes in the field of the assessment of the impact of radioactive substances on humans and the environment. It also involves maintaining and improving experimental skills and infrastructures within Europe.

HERCA

Heads of the European Radiological protection Competent Authorities

HERCA was created in 2007 at the initiative of the French Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN).

HERCA is a voluntary association in which the Heads of Radiation Protection Authorities work together in order to identify common issues and propose practical solutions for these issues. HERCA is working on topics generally covered by provisions of the EURATOM Treaty. The programme of work of HERCA is based on common interest in significant regulatory issues.

ICRP

International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP)

The work of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) helps to prevent cancer and other diseases and effects associated with exposure to ionising radiation, and to protect the environment.

Since 1928, ICRP has developed, maintained, and elaborated the International System of Radiological Protection used world-wide as the common basis for radiological protection standards, legislation, guidelines, programmes, and practice.

ICRP has published more than one hundred reports on all aspects of radiological protection. Most address a particular area within radiological protection, but a handful of publications, the so-called fundamental recommendations, each describe the overall system of radiological protection. The International System of Radiological Protection has been developed by ICRP based on (i) the current understanding of the science of radiation exposures and effects and (ii) value judgements. These value judgements take into account societal expectations, ethics, and experience gained in application of the system.

ICRP is an independent, international organisation with more than two hundred volunteer members from approximately thirty countries across six continents. These members represent the leading scientists and policy makers in the field of radiological protection.

ICRP is funded through a number of ongoing contributions from organisations with an interest in radiological protection.

CRPPH

Committee on Radiation Protection and Public Health (CRPPH)

The NEA's Committee on Radiation Protection and Public Health (CRPPH) is a valuable resource for its member countries. The committee is made up of regulators and radiation protection experts, with the broad mission to provide timely identification of new and emerging issues, to analyse their possible implications and to recommend or take action to address these issues to further enhance radiation protection regulation and implementation. The regulatory and operational consensus developed by the CRPPH on these emerging issues supports policy and regulation development in Member countries, and disseminates good practice.
