CEPN is a a non-profit organisation created in 1976 to establish a research and development centre in the fields of optimisation of radiological protection and comparison of health and environmental risks associated with energy systems.

This program was initially strongly focused on the development and application of the principle of optimization of radiological protection. Over the past few years, however, the group’s research programme has also been directed towards the involvement of stakeholders in radiological risk assessment and management, and spreading the radiological protection culture.

The studies are undertaken by a group of around fifteen engineers and economists. The research programme is evaluated by a Scientific Council.

The association currently has four members: the French public electricity generating utility (EDF), the Institute of Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN), the French Alternatives Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and AREVA.

NERIS: European platform on preparedness for nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery – Activities and perspectives

Abstract

Created in 2010, the aim of the NERIS platform is to establish a forum for dialogue and methodological development among all organisations and associations taking part in decision-making of protective actions in nuclear and radiological emergencies and recovery in Europe. The objectives of the platform are to contribute to improving the effectiveness of current approaches for preparedness, promoting more coherent approaches, identifying gaps and need for further developments, addressing new and emerging challenges, and maintaining and improving know-how and technical expertise in this field. This paper describes the missions, the organisation and the activities of the platform as well as the key components of its strategic research agenda.

Vous avez dit Radioprotection ?

Vous avez dit Radioprotection ?

Did you Say Radiation Protection? Stories of X-Rays, Radioactivity, etc …” is a traveling exhibition devoted to radiation protection, that is to say all the means to protect workers, the public and the environment from potentially harmful effects of X-rays and of radioactivity.

Rayons Santé

Rayons Santé

Rays and Health” is a traveling exhibition that aims to educate the general public on the uses of X-rays and radioactivity in medicine by highlighting the expected benefits but also the risks. Several topics are discussed to encourage caregivers and patients to have a reasoned and cautious approach in order to make the best use of X-rays and radioactivity for health.

ETHOS in Belarus

ETHOS en Biélorussie

Le projet européen ETHOS avait pour but d’améliorer durablement les conditions de vie des habitants des villages dont la vie quotidienne a été fortement affectée par la présence à long terme de contamination radioactive à la suite de l’accident de Tchernobyl. Il s’agissait d’une nouvelle démarche pluridisciplinaire basée sur une implication forte de la population dans l’évaluation et la gestion du risque radiologique en concertation avec les autorités locales, régionales et nationales et des experts biélorusses.
