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

Project ID: 508847
Funded under: FP6-EURATOM-RADPROT

Abstract

This is the periodic report of the ERICA project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). This summary reviews activities within the ERICA project at the time of the mid-term review, i.e. after 18 of the 36 months project duration, and briefly outlines the activities for the remaining 18 months. The project commenced 1 March 2004, and set out with the over-all objective to 'provide and apply an integrated approach of addressing scientific, managerial and societal issues surrounding environmental effects of ionising contamination, at a community level, with emphasis on biota and ecosystems. The final outcome of the project will be the delivery of the ERICA integrated approach to assessment, risk characterisation and management of environmental risks of ionising radiation at a European level'. The objective remains unchanged, the project is on time, and has performed its tasks and produced its deliverables in accordance with the technical annex (publicly available at the project website, http://www.erica-project.org). Only minor changes in the work programme are foreseen; all available information at the time of the Mid-Term Review suggests that the ERICA integrated approach will be delivered on time (February 2007).
