Final Activity Report - ERICA (Environmental Risk from Ionising Contaminants: Assessment and Management)

Project ID: 508847


This is the final report of the ERICA project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The aim of the project was to provide an integrated approach to scientific, managerial and societal issues concerned with the environmental effects of contaminants emitting ionising radiation, with emphasis on biota and ecosystems. The work paralleled the work of the International Commission of Radiological Protection (ICRP) in the area and there were frequent contacts and collaboration between the ERICA project and other international and national programmes in the field of environmental radioactivity. The objectives are outlined and the activities undertaken to achieve them. The report places the results in the broad perspective of the complete project and includes the major insights that have been obtained, their relation to the main objective and the necessary actions to progress further towards their goal at the end of the project.
