Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-RADPROT

Abstract

This is the final report of the EURANOS project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The primary aim of the project was to collate information on the likely effectiveness and applicability of a wide range of countermeasures, to provide guidance to emergency management organisations and decision makers on the establishment of an appropriate response strategy and to further enhance advanced decision support systems (DSS), in particular, RODOS, through feedback from their operational use. Furthermore, the projectaimed to develop guidance to assists Member States in developing a framework for the sustainable rehabilitation of living conditions in long term contaminated areas and to maintain and enhance knowledge and competence through emergency exercises, training and education. The report is divided into the three major research activities and a set of demonstration projects which were split into two phases lasting over two and three years, respectively. The research activities addressed specific issues previously identified by end-users or by previous research in the area. They were focused on emergency actions and countermeasures, the enhancement of decision support systems for operational application and the development of strategies for the sustainable rehabilitation of contaminated territories. The demonstration activities exercised the developed methods and tools in the actual operational environment.
