IUR is 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.
With an active membership of over 600 from 58 countries, IUR represents an authoritative source of information on all aspects of radioecology.
- Journal of Environmental Radioactivity is affiliated to IUR.
- IUR promotes wide partnership through co-signing Memoranda of Understanding with relevant networks and international organizations.
