Environmental Risk from Ionising Contaminants: Assessment and Management (ERICA), Final report

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

Abstract

The ERICA project was partly funded by the EU under the Sixth Euratom Framework Programme (FP6 Euratom). It brought together over 50 scientists from 15 organisations and 7 countries. ERICA was designed to support efforts to assess the environmental impact of ionising radiation and to protect the environment from harmful effects of ionising radiation. The project continued and broadened the earlier FASSET (Framework for Assessment of Environmental Impact) and EPIC (Environmental Protection from Ionising Contaminants in the Arctic) projects, supported under FP5 Euratom. The work paralleled the work of the International Commission of Radiological Protection (ICRP) in the area and there were frequent contacts and collaboration between the ERICA project and other international and national programmes in the field of environmental radioactivity.
