The conference will again be complemented with a full day workshop in collaboration with the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), RACI Radiochemisty division workshop.
The ERICA Assessment Tool is a software system that has a structure based upon the tiered ERICA Integrated Approach to assessing the radiological risk to terrestrial, freshwater and marine biota. A level of prior knowledge of the tool and the concepts underpinning it would be an advantage but not essential. For information and a free download of the tool follow please this link here.

The SPERA 2022 Organising Committee looks forward to seeing you in Christchurch.
