The TERRITORIES project targets an integrated and graded management of contaminated territories characterised by long-lasting environmental radioactivity

About/Aims
Background

Radiological protection of the public and wildlife exposed to environmental radioactivity has recently evolved due to the publication in 2014 of IAEA1 and European2 Basic Safety Standards, and the lessons learned in the recent international experience, mainly after the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear accident.

Objectives

The objective of TERRITORIES is to build a methodological approach to reduce uncertainties to a fit-for-purpose level in support of the decision making process by encompassing stakeholder involvement to assess and manage, in a graded way, (effective and absorbed) doses associated to
long-lasting exposure situations of both human and wildlife populations. This will be achieved by:

  • targeting harmonized guidance at the European level
  • being unified, i.e. applicable to all types of long-lasting exposure situations
  • being made available to those in charge of making decisions, and
  • considering all relevant sources of uncertainty.
