The University of Seville (US), with more than 500 years of existence, is one of the oldest Universities in Europe with more than 40000 students and 3000 docents/researchers, and carries out education and research activities, funded through both governmental research budgets and external research contracts. Applied Nuclear Physics Research Group belongs to the University of Seville. This group started their activities in 1980 and during more than 30 years have been performed research in the fields of radioecology, radiation protection of the public, radiometric dating , low level counting, application of novel techniques for radionuclide determination (AMS) at microtrace levels, occupational impact of NORM industries, etc. More than 250 papers in international peer-reviewed journals reflect their research contribution to the society. In addition, the group carries out since 1986 part of the National Environmental Radiation Programme in the South of Spain under the umbrella of the Spanish Nuclear Security Council.
