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.
To comply with the evolution of the global pandemic, the 6th NERIS Workshop is now scheduled on 20-22 October 2021.
We hope being able to gather in-person in Barcelona (Spain) at Palau Macau, but we also maintain the possibility to organize the Workshop via web-meeting, partially or fully. The decision will be communicated later.
The 12th General Assembly is organized via web-meeting on 9th June 2021 afternoon from 2 to 4 PM (Paris Time).
We are really sad to learn that Ciara McMahon, Director of the Office of Radiological Protection at the Irish Environmental Protection Agency and member of the NERIS Management Board, passed away suddenly on Friday 15th January 2021. This is truly sad news.
Ciara was so kind with everybody and greatly committed to promoting emergency response and recovery preparedness.
Our deep thoughts to Ciara’s family, friends and colleagues.
Ciara will be greatly missed by all the NERIS community.
We are pleased to announce the publication of the NERIS Roadmap 2020, in the framework of CONCERT WP2.
Following the publication of the updated NERIS SRA in November 2019, the process of updating the NERIS long-term roadmap was initiated in parallel to the preparation of the Joint Roadmap on Radiation Protection Research established in 2020 within H2020 CONCERT EJP.
The present Roadmap is an update of the first NERIS Roadmap established in November 2017. A series of exchanges was organised after the European Radiation Protection Week meeting held in October 2019 in Stockholm. Initially, the process envisaged for updating the NERIS Roadmap included the organisation of an open meeting prior to the NERIS workshop to be held in Barcelona at the end of May 2020. Due to COVID-19 crisis, the NERIS management board decided to organise a series of video-conference meetings between mid-March and end of May 2020 and to establish 3 working groups, involving mainly members of the NERIS management board and R&D committee, to address each of the challenge areas defined in the NERIS SRA. Following the consultation of the NERIS community, the updated NERIS roadmap has been published on May 29, 2020.
