Collation of Ukrainian/Russian/Belarussian publications on ecology and biodiversity in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone
Recipient: Chornoby Center for Nuclear Safety, Radioactive Waste and Radioecology (Ukraine) via UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology
Knowledge of the ecology and biodiversity of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is of value when planning and interpreting radioecology studies. Being aware that there were papers on this published in Russian or Ukrainian, or in some instances in English but in Ukrainian journals, the ALLIANCE funded a collation of papers and reports with titles and abstracts translated into English. Ukrainian/Russian/Belarussian publications

Workshop to identify future research priorities for human foodchain modelling
Recipient: Ciemat, Spain
In September 2019, a joint workshop between the Radioecology ALLIANCE Human Foodchain Working Goup and the CONFIDENCE project was held in Madrid. The approximately 40 participants included representatives from regulatory bodies, industry, governmental agencies and the IAEA. The aim of the workshop was to identify future priorities for radioecological research with respect to the human food chain; discussions are summarised in Beresford et al. 2020.
The ALLIANCE also provides support to the European Radiation Protection week (ERPW) and offers student prizes at the tri-annual International Conference on Radioecology & Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) conference.
