The 13th issue of Aktis, IRSN’s scientific newsletter, is available
This lastest issue focuses on geochemical investigations downstream from former mines, treats of NUCLEA, a thermodynamic database for materials and deals with the assessment of the “biological dose” received in the case of contamination and with using stem cells to treat radiation-induced visceral pain.
EURADOS Young Scientist Award goes to IRSN researcher
The work rewarded relates to an intercomparison
proposed and implemented by LEDI as part of EURADOS. The intercomparison aimed
to evaluate the internal dose received by nuclear workers, as part of
epidemiological studies on the induced risks of uranium exposure.
Launch of the European CONFIDENCE project
The kick-off meeting for the European CONFIDENCE project took place in Karlsruhe, Germany on 16 and 17 February. CONFIDENCE was selected after a call for projects by CONCERT, the European joint programming tool whose goals include consolidating various radioprotection research projects.
