The TERRITORIES D9.74 about the Workshop held in Madrid last June, has been approved by the EC

The EC has just approved the Deliverable “D 9.74 – TERRITORIES Workshop on: Multidisciplinary forum to discuss the scientific basis for reducing uncertainties and improving risk assessment”.

The D9.74 can be downloaded in: https://territories.eu/assets/files/publications/D9_74_After-each-training_2nd-year_TERRITORIES_WS2018_2018-11-05_approved07112018.pdf

The TERRITORIES project is pleased to announce the availability of funds for travel scholarships.

The TERRITORIES project has launched two types of scholarships:

  1. Specific scholarships for trainees (students and early career scientists) not involved in TERRITORIES, to go to the 2019 Oxford workshop (https://territories.eu/workshops). More details and application form on:https://territories.eu/scholarships/oxford
  2. General scholarhips for scientists (including those involved in TERRITORIES) to engage in activities which support the TERRITORIES objectives. More details and application form on: https://territories.eu/scholarships/general

Very useful IAEA recent publications

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has recently published the following Safety Standards Series Reports:

  • IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GSG-8, Radiation Protection of the Public and the Environment;
  • IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GSG-9, Regulatory Control of Radioactive Discharges to the Environment;
  • IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GSG-10, Prospective Radiological Environmental Impact Assessment for Facilities and Activities

The recommendations provided in these three Safety Guides, together with the requirements of IAEA General Safety Requirements( GSR Part 3), provide a basis for including environmental considerations in the assessment and management of radioactive releases.
