Upcoming Events

Radiation Protection Week 2016

Building on and extending the highly successful MELODI workshops and in the light of greater integration of European research on Radiation Protection demonstrated by the CONCERT European Joint Programme, the RPW2016 will be organized on 19-23 September in Oxford, UK. The meeting will bring together complementary strands of radiation protection research, with the established European platforms MELODI, EURADOS, NERIS and ALLIANCE as co-organisers, along with other relevant areas. More information will be available soon.

DoReMi’s 4th Periodic and final meeting

DoReMi’s 4th Periodic and final meeting will be organized on 8-10 December 2015 in Budapest, Hungary.

The periodic/final meeting is mainly intended for DoReMi members, but the programme of the meeting also includes an open session:

Workshop on implication of science to low dose risk assessment and radiation protection
scheduled on 10 December 2015 at 12.00 – 17.00 hours

LD-RadStats: DoReMi Workshop for statisticians interested in contributing to EU low dose radiation research

This meeting will be held on 26-28 October 2015 in CREAL, Barcelona, Spain.

One of the key themes identified as a priority in DoReMi as well as across the EU low dose radiation research projects is integration of multidisciplinary research. Although there are a number of high quality individual mathematicians, statisticians and modellers involved in specific research projects, there is still a generic gap in terms of the availability of statistical support across the consortia.

This workshop has been designed with the aim of bringing together mathematicians, statisticians and modellers who are currently working on DoReMi and other low dose radiation research projects with researchers from Universities or other research institutes who may be interested/able to contribute to low dose radiation research. Each participant will be asked to speak for approximately 20 - 30 minutes about their current research. There will then be focused breakout sessions to discuss how to move forward.

It is intended that the meeting will be the first of what we hope will be a formal network of individuals with mathematical backgrounds who are interested in low dose radiation research. It is also anticipated that this activity will result in formal and informal interdisciplinary collaborations, perhaps funded by EU projects going forward.

The workshop is currently by invitation only but anyone who thinks they may be interested in participating should contact the workshop organisers through: liz.ainsbury@phe.gov.uk.

“OPERRA Workshop: Social and Psychological Consequences of Disasters and Emergencies ", 14-15 October 2015, Barcelona, Spain

During a nuclear emergency, and in the years that follow, the health status of affected populations may be influenced not only by the radiation but also by the drastic changes in their living conditions. Both the response to the accident and related remediation measures might, for example, result in disturbances to society that have direct and/or indirect impacts on health.

The objectives of the workshop are:
 » to review current scientific knowledge about ethical aspects as well as social and psychological effects of emergency situations (radiological and non-radiological);
 » to evaluate how those findings have been/can be taken into account in designing post-accidental interventions to alleviate the negative social and psychological consequences in the affected populations.

Talks will cover previous and current activities (and findings) in the areas of ethics, sociology, social psychology, psychology, and risk communication.

Sufficient time will be provided for plenary discussions and recommendations for the next steps in designing appropriate post-accidental interventions.

Both workshops aim at overcoming thematic and disciplinary boundaries and will examine the transferable knowledge gained from the experiences and procedures outside the are of radiation emergency situations.

More information available here.




OPERRA Workshop: Lessons learned about somatic health effects from radiation and non-radiation accidents", 13 October 2015

The objectives of this workshop are
 » to review lessons learned about somatic effects from radiological and non-radiological accidents;
 » to evaluate how those findings have been/can be taken into account in designing post-accidental responses and follow-up of affected populations.

Talks will cover previous and current activities (and findings) in the areas of study design, exposure reconstruction and cancer and non-cancer effects.

More information available here.
