ICRER 2014 - 3rd International Conference on Radioecology & Environmental Radioactivity
Environmental radioactivity

[ 7-12 September 2014 - Barcelona, Spain [report] ]

The 3rd International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity has been quite successfully held in Barcelona, Spain, from 7 to 12 September 2014, with 430 participants from 46 countries.

The Conference was the third International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity building on the success of the previous events held in Bergen, Norway in June 2008 and Hamilton, Canada in June 2011.
The aim for this series is to organize a conference every 3rd year, to review and discuss recent  achievements in environmental radioactivity and related disciplines. The conferences promotes continued development in these subjects to improve radiological protection of humans and the environment.
The International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity 2014 covered the acquisition of basic scientific knowledge in research as well as identifying new societal needs and technical requirements for regulators and industry. This included predicting the consequences of all sources of radioactivity namely nuclear legacy, industrial, (enhanced) natural, accidental and potential. Design of appropriate emergency preparedness routines will be another focus area, as well as supporting the development of regulations that protect man and ecosystems from the effects of radiation. The conference will be a key forum for researchers, industry, regulators and experts for whom radioactivity in the environment is an interest area.
