Modelling and measurement training course, 20 April – 1 May 2020, Roskilde Denmark

The training course on “Assessment of long-term radiological risks from environmental releases: modelling and measurements”, 20 April – 1 May 2020, Roskilde, Denmark is organised by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in cooperation with PDC-ARGOS. The training course is co-funded by the European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research CONCERT.

The course is aimed at providing the participants with an understanding of how to assess by measurements and modelling the long-term radiological risks from releases to the environment of radionuclides. Nuclear power plant accidents will particularly be in focus, but RDD’s will be considered.

The course builds on decades of international research work, e.g., in European projects such as ECP-4, STRATEGY, EURANOS, NERIS TP and PREPARE, including unique experience from extensive practical investigations in contaminated areas and laboratory assessments. It comprises a hands-on introduction to laboratory measurement techniques including state-of-the-art radiochemistry methods for determination of radionuclides that can not easily be determined. It also includes a hands-on decision support modelling session using a state-of-the-art computerised decision support system for nuclear and radiological emergency management.

The course will provide insight into:

  • Assessment of long-term radiological risks from releases to the environment
  • Theoretical principles of dosimetry
  • Implications of different contamination scenario types
  • Migration of radioactive contaminants in different types of environment
  • Modelling internal dose and specific factors influencing ingestion dose
  • Modelling external dose in contaminated inhabited areas
  • Decision support systems for accident management
  • Important concepts in sampling and gamma spectrometry
  • Radiochemical analysis for radionuclides that are difficult to measure
  • Rapid radiochemistry techniques for multiple samples

Registration: Deadline on 15th of January 2020. Limited to 12 participants

The targeted audience is PhD students and young scientists / advisors. The course will give students 2.5 ECTS points.

There is no registration fee for persons with affiliation to a European organisation. Participants are expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs (e.g., meals, hotel, visa if needed)

CONFIDENCE Dissemination Workshop "Coping with uncertainties for improved modelling and decision making in nuclear emergencies”, Bratislava, Slovak Republic, 02-05 December, 2019

The CONFIDENCE Dissemination workshop “Coping with uncertainties for improved modelling and decision making in nuclear emergencies”, organized by VUJE AS, was held at Lindner Hotel, Bratislava, Slovak Republic in December, 02-05, 2019. About 90 scientists and decision makers attended the workshop.

The dissemination workshop allowed to present the results of the CONFIDENCE project, demonstrated the applicability of the developed methods and tools in interactive discussion sessions and collected feedback from the participants and end users on the work performed.

We are pleased to announce that presentations and posters are now available for download. To do so, access the "Library" panel, "Archives" sub-panel, go to CONCERT -> CONFIDENCE -> CONFIDENCE Dissemination Workshop. For technical reasons, the presentations can't be downloaded as a whole in one time. Be aware that some archives are segmented in parts.

SHARE - European platform for Social Sciences and humanities research relating to ionizing radiation

The mission of SHARE is to stimulate the integration of social sciences and humanities (SSH) in research, practice and policy related to ionizing radiation, including, for example: radiation protection, low dose risk, radioecology, emergency preparedness and response, dosimetry, medical applications, radioactive waste management, nuclear energy production, safety, NORM, site remediation, radon etc. To this end, SHARE structures and enhances dialogue at the European level and beyond, among the different stakeholders, fostering the sharing of knowledge and information among various disciplines working on aspects of ionizing radiation. SHARE was officially launched in July 2019 with the first General Assembly held in Barcelona after the RICOMET 2019 conference. It currently involves 24 organisations from 13 different countries.

SHARE organizes annual conference RICOMET. The conference is a unique opportunity to collect state-of-the-art, present and discuss projects or research results since it is an international, multidisciplinary and stakeholder driven event, devoted to academics, researchers, experts and civil society stakeholders involved in social science and humanities research on ionizing radiation. The conference includes scientific sessions, workshops, round tables, parallel meetings and is attended by participants working in the field of SSH and ionizing radiation.

A prospective Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in radiological protection was developed by a collective of research institutes and universities. This is the first time such a research agenda has been proposed. Six research lines of interest and concern have been identified: (1) Effects of social, psychological and economic aspects on RP behaviour; (2) Holistic approaches to the governance of radiological risks; (3) Responsible research and innovation in RP; (4) Stakeholder engagement and participatory processes in RP research, development, policy and practice; (5) Risk communication; and (6) RP cultures. These topics were developed through broad stakeholder consultation, in conjunction with activities carried out in the framework of various projects and initiatives (EU H2020 CONCERT programme, the EU FP7 projects OPERRA, PREPARE and EAGLE, the 2015–2018 RICOMET series of conferences, and the 2014 and 2016 International Symposia on Ethics of Environmental Health); as well as through dialogues with members of the European radiation protection research communities. The six research lines open opportunities to integrate a range of key social and ethical considerations into RP, thereby expanding research opportunities and programmes and fostering collaborative approaches to research and innovation.
