Within Work Package 4 (Strategic and integrated communication, education and training) of the TERRITORIES (To Enhance unceRtainties Reduction and stakeholders Involvement TOwards integrated and graded Risk management of humans and wildlife In long-lasting radiological Exposure Situations) project, one of the objectives is to identify and communicate to appropriate audiences the existing capabilities, key uncertainties, needs and knowledge gaps in radiological risk assessment and management for humans and wildlife in long-lasting radiological exposure situations. To reach this objective, a number of workshops will be organised through the 3 years of the project.  The TERRITORIES project has received funding from the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 in the framework of the CONCERT EJP [grant agreement No 662287].

 In 2017, two workshops will be organised:

  •  Workshop one: Key factors contributing to uncertainties in radiological risk assessment, which objective is to discuss the key factors contributing to overall uncertainties when linking deposition and ecosystem transfer to human and ecosystem radiological risk assessment models, obtaining feedback from modellers, experimentalists and stakeholders on this subject.
  •  Workshop two: Communication of uncertainties of radiological risk assessments to stakeholders, which objective is to discuss the implications and relevance of uncertainties in radiological risk assessments for different stakeholders and how these uncertainties can be better communicated, obtaining feedback from regulators, industry, scientists and “public/social sciences” on this subject.
  • Both workshops will be held in Oslo, Norway, November 14-16th 2017 (Thon Hotel Slottsparken, Wergelandsveien 5, 0167, Oslo; https://www.thonhotels.com/our-hotels/norway/oslo/thon-hotel-slottsparken). Since both workshops are strongly connected, people are encouraged to participate in both of them.
