EURATOM Project Outputs
The EURATOM and other European Commission (EC) programmes (e.g. INCO-Copernicus, ECP) have supported many radioecology related projects over the last three decades. However, the outputs of these projects have not been catalogued in a way such as they are all openly accessible. STAR has collated and made available outputs of many of the EC funded projects, starting with projects with active involvement of STAR members (the collation largely starts with the 5th Framework Programme although a few earlier projects are included).
Brief overviews of the projects and their outputs are provided on these web pages; where appropriate we have also noted developments of outputs once the project has finished.
For ease of presentation the various projects have been categorised according to topics:
- Behaviour of radionuclides in the aquatic environment
- Behaviour of radionucides in the terrestrial environment
- Education, training and cross-cutting studies
- Emergency preparedness and remediation
- Human epidemiology and low dose effects
- Monitoring and analytical procedures
- Radiation protection of the environment
In addition, STAR has arranged for publications from EC funded projects related to radioecology to be made available through the searchable International Nuclear Information System (INIS) of the International Atomic Energy Agency although not all documents are currently available from the site. The INIS hosts one of the world's largest collections of published information on nuclear science and technology and also offers on-line access to a unique collection of non-conventional literature.
Further information and documents (final reports and summary reports of some projects by topic area) can also be found from the documents link on the EC EUROPA website.
Please note that the project summaries on these pages have been produced by STAR members and we acknowledge that they may be biased by our individual interests. Former colleagues involved in any of the projects should therefore not hesitate to suggest appropriate corrections or provide additional publications. Please send any information to Lavrans Skuterud.
