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.
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.
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.
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.
For further details, you can find information on the websites of our NERIS supporting organisations:
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).
