Share scientific achievements and the most effective methods deployed at national or international level to improve radiological protection of humans and the environment. This is the purpose of the International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) which will take place from Sunday 7 September 2014 to Friday 12 September in Barcelona, Spain.
Held every three years, ICRER is an opportunity for researchers from many countries to present their works and feedback in environmental radioactivity and related disciplines as well as identifying new societal needs and technical requirements for regulators and industry.
This will include predicting the consequences of all sources of radioactivity; industrial, (enhanced) natural, accidental and potential. Design of appropriate emergency preparedness routines will be another focus area, as well as supporting the development of laws and regulations that protect man and ecosystems from the effects of radiation.
The Conference is co-organized by the IRSN and the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority
(NRPA) and is co-sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO). Jean-Christophe Gariel (Director of Environment at IRSN) and Per Strand (Director of the Department of Nuclear Safety and Environmental radioactivity at NRPA) will jointly chair the Conforence.
Jacques Repussard, Director General of IRSN, will deliver the opening address and more than twenty experts and researchers at IRSN will present their research topics and applications along the Conference.
