Abstract

The Commission of the European Communities, in the framework of its Radiation Protection Programme, initiated in 1983 a two-year project on underbar"M"ethods for underbar"A"ssessing the underbar"R"adiological underbar"I"mpact of underbar"A"ccidents - MARIA''. Major contractors were the Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe (KfK-FRG) and the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB-UK). Within the 1985-1989 Radiation Protection Programme, the MARIA programme was continued and enlarged (MARIA-2) through complementary research contracts in several Member States. At present, 20 projects contribute to the MARIA-2 programme, the priorities of which are briefly presented. In the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident, the priorities of the MARIA-2 programme were evaluated and additional projects were started. A total of ten actions, of which five are directly relevant for the MARIA-2 programme, was launched.
