In the framework of CONCERT WP2, NERIS, as other European research platforms, prepared its roadmap with a long-term view and aiming to identify research priorities in emergency and recovery issues. This roadmap also contributes to explore joint interests for multidisciplinary and synergistic research between all research Platforms in radiation protection.
The development of this roadmap is based on two scenarios with societal concern related to NERIS issues:
- Facing the consequences of a nuclear or radiological major accident or incident: how to optimize society’s preparedness, and short term/long term response?
- Facing the threat of a radiological terrorist act: How to minimize consequences?
The NERIS roadmap has been elaborated by identifying research priorities in a long-term goal (0-5 years, 6-10 years, > 10 years) and in line with the updated NERIS SRA.
This document has been elaborated by the NERIS R&D Committee and the NERIS Management Board during last year. A dedicated consultation meeting, gathering all NERIS stakeholders was held last September in Brussels and allowed to finalize this first version of the document.
