Radiation Dosimetry Network, Final report (summary)

Project ID: FIR1-CT-2000-20104
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

A collaborative framework of coordination for research in ionising radiation dosimetry has emerged from scientific groups engaged in the different framework programmes (FPs) of the European Commission. The European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS), conceived in 1981, has acquired the capabilities of coordination for the network of experts necessary to operate so that appropriate specialists groups can be formed in a timely manner to solve problems and promote research identified within EURADOS or upon request from external bodies. EURADOS has shown a special aptitude to contribute to the transfer of research and development issues and of scientific knowledge to a wide range of stakeholders in the use of ionising radiation and in radiation protection. The successive working groups set up during these periods and assigned with specific objectives have altogether contributed to:
- advance the scientific understanding of the dosimetry of ionising radiation;
- promote the technical development of dosimetric methods and instrumentation and their implementation in routine dosimetry;
- assist partners and stakeholders in achieving compatibility of dosimetric procedures used within the EU, and, in general, conformity to international practice; and
- stimulate collaboration and the dissemination of results between European laboratories and neighbouring associations.
