We would like to invite you forCONCERT-European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research’ under Horizon 2020 is operating as an umbrella structure for the research initiatives jointly launched by the radiation protection research platforms MELODI, ALLIANCE, NERIS and EURADOS. Based on the platform SRAs and joint programming, CONCERT will develop research priorities, align them with priorities from participating Member States and will seek further input from society and stakeholders. It will reach out to engage the wider scientific community in its projects, aiming to answer the needs in radiation protection for the public, occupationally exposed people, patients in medicine, and the environment. To reach its goals, CONCERT has seven Work Packages each of which will focus on each of the key directions. The WP’s are already established.
Within CONCERT two major open RTD calls have been launched; the first one in spring 2016 and the other one in spring 2017. Research groups from all over Europe had the opportunity to join in research consortia and submit proposals.
CONCERT WP5 group has been developed a public survey aiming to gauge the perception of radiation risk amongst a wide range of people who are not radiation specialists and their opinion on information that would be helpful to a general audience to understand radiation risk
The survey was launched recently.
To reach a larger segment of the population, trying to minimize the impact of linguistic barriers, the text of the public survey has been translated in several European languages.
The versions available can be accessed via the survey page: http://www.concert-h2020.eu/en/Stakeholders/Public_survey.
There will be a LATVIAN version soon.
Deadline is 31st OCTOBER 2017.
