In order to further the policy of developing and maintaining expertise in the radiation protection research community, CONCERT is offering a total of 10,000 € per year for travel awards to junior scientists. Support can be given for participation in a conference, a course or for an exchange visit to a laboratory, where this can be shown to be of value for increasing the applicant’s involvement and knowledge/skills in current European research in radiation protection. The next application deadline is the 30 of September.

The training course “Use of uncertain information by decision makers at the various levels within the decision making process and its communication” will take place the days 13-16 May 2019, in Trnava (Slovak Republic).
Guides and recommendations for the decision making in the post release and transition phase taking into account uncertain information will be presented and tested. Attendees will debate how to interpret, use and communicate uncertainties within the decision making process. The course and practical sessions/workshops will also consider the: establishment and optimisation of remediation strategies; benefits of stakeholder involvement; inclusion of human behaviour, cultural differences and stakeholder preferences as a part of the tools to aid decision making.
Training the trainers and facilitators of national, regional and local workshops based on learning from doing and own engagement and experience during the training course is one of the goals of the training.
While there is no registration fee, training course participation is limited to a maximum of 24 participants and pre-registration is required by filling the online pre-registration form. Priority will be given to participants from E.U. countries working in the domain of nuclear or radiological emergency and recovery management. You can pre-register with the following link or with the link provided on the NERIS website.
Do not wait to make your pre-registration online!
The TREE project (TRansfer – Exposure – Effects (TREE): Integrating the science needed to underpin radioactivity assessments for humans and wildlife) (http://tree.ceh.ac.uk/) will be holding an open dissemination event in London on 21st September 2018. The target audience is potential end-users of the project (regulators, government agencies and industry) and other interested parties. Discussions will include the identification of future priorities. For more details see http://tree.ceh.ac.uk/content/events-training and the TREE flyer.
Attendance is free, but numbers will be capped due to size of the conference room. To register an interest in attending please email Nick Beresford (email@example.com).

The NERIS platform has just published a new issue of its Newsletter, in which the Annual meeting of TERRITORIES in mentioned, among other interesting meetings and workshops.
It has been an intensive and fruitfull week of TERRITORIES’ meetings and a workshop, discussing interesting scientific aspects related with the project activities.
Fortunately, after a hard work day, we also had time to share a cold drink with the colleagues in the CIEMAT sport area, and to talk about radioecology but also about “life”.
MANY THANKS TO ALLL THE PARTICIPANTS FOR THESE EXCELLENT DAYS!
TERRITORIES will be active all over Europe next week:
