An international perspective with respect to radioecology in the future
2013-07-30 - Radioecology

[ IUR Contribution to a Strategic Research Agenda in Radioecology ]
Two complementary consultations were conducted during the last months to identify research priorities: SRA consultation and IUR consultation. To feed prioritization, the IUR questionnaire examines in particular the influence of the context within which radioecology evolution and goals are considered: . Position of radioecology with respect to radioprotection science . Position of… Read more >>
