An independent, non-political & non-profit Knowing Society dedicated to the worldwide development of Radioecology, operating as a Think Tank

Radioecology is a highly multidisciplinary scientific discipline situated at the crossroads between environmental radioactivity, whether natural or man-made, and its consequences on both, man and the environment. It deals with radioactivity as a stressor requiring risk assessment, but also as a tracer of biogeochemical and ecological processes.
