Abstract

The main aims of the conference were to present the major achievements of the 16 projects of the joint European Commision/Commonwealth of Independent States (EC/CIS) collaborative research programme (1992-95) on the consequences of the Chernobyl accident and to promote an objective evaluation of them by the international scientific community. Five main objectives were assigned to the EC/CIS scientific collaborative programme:
improvement of the knowledge of the relationship between doses and radiation induced health effects;
updating of the arrangements for off site emergency management response (short and medium term) in the event of a future nuclear accident;
assisting the relevant CIS ministries to alleviate the consequences of the Chernobyl accident, in particular in the field of restoration of contaminated territories;
elaboration of a scientific basis to define the content of Community assistance programmes;
updating of the local technical infrastructure and implementation of a large programme of exchange of scientists between both Communities. The topics addressed during the conference mainly reflect the content of the joint collaborative programme:
environmental transfer and decontamination;
risk assessment and management;
