Radiation protection seminars

Radiation protection seminars

Every year, the European Commission organises a scientific seminar on a radiation protection issue. Based on the outcome of the seminar, the Commission's radioactivity group of experts may recommend new research, regulations, or legislation. Materials from these seminars can be found below.

EU Scientific Seminar 2015 on risk communication

The EU Scientific Seminar 2015 on risk communication took place in Luxembourg 18 November 2015. Internationally renowned scientists presented the following issues in risk communication:

The presentations were followed by a round table discussion, in which the speakers, invited experts and the Article 31 Group of Experts, discussed potential policy implications and research needs .
