European Platform on preparedness for nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery
The mission of the NERIS Platform is to establish a forum for dialogue and methodological development between all European organisations and associations taking part in decision making of protective actions in nuclear and radiological emergencies and recovery in Europe.
The NERIS workshop will last 2.5 days during which the first afternoon will be devoted to the organisation of the 9th General Assembly and two NERIS working group meetings. Then, the next two days will be dedicated to oral presentations dealing with the 7 topics of interest for this workshop (see below). On Thursday 26 evening, a tour of the Dublin Castle will be proposed, right before the workshop dinner planned in Dublin City Center. The last part of the NERIS workshop will focus on the CONCERT Joint Roadmap and its possible links with NERIS activities. The NERIS Young Scientist award ceremony will mark the end of the workshop.

This Workshop, organised in cooperation with the Irish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), will address the issue of 'Adapting nuclear and radiological emergency preparedness, response and recovery to a changing world'.
The NERIS Workshop 2018 will provide an opportunity to discuss and exchange views with NERIS Members, International organisations and European Research communities on priorities for the NERIS Platform.
The European Radiation Protection Research Platforms MELODI, EURADOS, NERIS, ALLIANCE and EURAMED have jointly planned an open information and networking day related to the EURATOM Call NFRP-2018-8 last February 20th, 2018, in Munich.
As a result of this meeting, you can download here the different gap analyses of the European Platforms as well as the joint research topics that have been identified.
Please note that the upcoming NERIS Workshop (25-27 April 2018 in Dublin) will be the occasion to continue the discussions, as the last session of the workshop will be dedicated to the CONCERT Joint Roadmap and all the European Platforms have been invited to contribute to this session.

The nineth NERIS General Assembly will be held on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 13.30 to 17.00 at the occasion of the NERIS Workshop 2018 in Dublin (Ireland) The meeting will be held at the Dublin Castle.
During this Assembly, we will review the on-going activities of the NERIS Platform and we will discuss its perspectives, notably with international organisations and experts.
The overall goal of a SRA is to provide basis for priorities regarding future research & development needs. It is an instrument for creating synergies, co-operation and coordination internally between the NERIS participants and externally with activities taking place within the European Joint Programming for Radiation Protection Research and within other international forums.
The new version of the NERIS SRA has been elaborated during these last 18 months by the NERIS R&D Committee and the NERIS Management Board. Also, consultations with the NERIS Stakeholders have been made during the last NERIS Workshop in Lisbon notably.
