The Integrated Project EURANOS, through the commitment of fifty operational emergency management organisations, 'stakeholder groups" and competent RTD institutes of many European countries who actively contribute to the following objectives, will build a fully interactive framework for initiating and promoting practical improvements of emergency management and rehabilitation strategies in Europe never reached before:
(A) creating better communication links between those responsible for nuclear and radiological emergency management in European countries with the perspective of fast notifications, information exchange and interaction through more direct channels;
(B) providing better coherence and transparency in decision processes on local, national and border crossing interventions as one input to improving public understanding and acceptance of off-site measures;
(C) supporting decisions on effective and timely emergency actions and countermeasures in case of nuclear or radiological emergencies by access to reliable, consistent and comprehensive information, and in this way mitigating radiological and economic consequences;
(D) developing a coherent framework for the sustainable rehabilitation of living conditions in contaminated areas by implementing integrated and decentralised approaches involving key stakeholders and the public.
A common approach and an European perspective of a more harmonised emergency management and rehabilitation strategy on the local, national and supra-national levels will be created and promoted through common emergency exercises and their thorough evaluation together with all stakeholders involved and through "stakeholder panels" on the key issues of rehabilitation. The common views on improved technical tools; methods, strategies and guidance will also create initiatives on the administrative and political levels to improve the efficacy of European emergency management and rehabilitation strategies.
