The community Radiation Protection Programme aims to update the scientific basis for radiation protection standards and to develop methods and techniques for preventing and counteracting harmful effects of radiation and/or for coping with the consequences of radiation accidents. In this way, it provides the information required for optimization of radiological protection and for decision making on the basis of a realistic assessment of risks from ionizing radiation. The research spans a wide range of scientific and applied problems from the determination of levels, of pathways and of prevention of exposure to the study of somatic and genetic effects and the prevention and treatment of radiation damage. This is reflected in the present volume which summarizes the research activities of the Radiation Protection Programme in 1983 and which contains the results of about 400 projects from contracts with national institutions and universities in the Member States. Comparing this report with earlier ones shows how the requirements of radiation protection have changed over the years, how scientific knowledge has advanced and how the programme has been adapted.
