PIANOFORTE kick off meeting (14-15 June 2022), IRSN, Fontenay-aux-Roses, France2022-06-15T10:53:13+00:00

PIANOFORTE kick-off meeting is taking place in Fontenay-aux-Roses in France on 14- 15 June 2022.

will consolidate an EU-wide research and innovation community in the field of radiation protection to support the EU and national authorities, thus ensuring progress with new knowledge, innovative methods, technologies and skills to address current knowledge gaps, societal concerns and emerging issues. An integrated approach will exploit synergies between various areas of expertise, including cancer diagnosis and treatments; medical, industrial or environmental exposure; and emergency management in relation to accidents involving radiation, to maximise benefits and outcomes. The consortium, largely based on the integration effort accomplished by the radiation protection research community over the previous decade and supported within Horizon 2020 and EC/EURATOM research programme frameworks, will be under the leadership of the French Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) and include many national radiation research and protection agencies and each of the MEENAS platforms. Always considering radiation safety, the vision supported by this partnership is to provide both a pan-European scientific and technological basis for a robust system of protection and more consolidated science-based policy recommendations to decision makers in many different fields and innovation in ionising-radiation-based medical applications combating cancer and other diseases by new and optimised diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. In the long term, these efforts will translate into additional or improved practical measures and improved scientific insights in view of better outcomes for patients suffering from cancer and the effective protection of the public, workers, patients and environment.

5th International Symposium on Ethics of Environmental Health, 11-14 September 20222022-06-15T10:52:30+00:00

The 5th International Symposium on Ethics of Environmental Health will take place in Budweis, Czech Republic, from 11 to 14 September 2022. As in earlier years (2011, 2014, 2016, and 2018), one of the main topics will be ethics of radiological protection, but there will be interesting cross-connections with ethics of toxicology, public health, emergency preparedness and other related fields.

Scientists, regulators and practitioners from all over the world will come together to discuss ethical issues related to radiation and chemical protection, epidemiology, biomonitoring, risk management, emergency preparedness and related areas.

Detailed information can be gained from www.iseeh.org.

Deadline for abstract submission and early registration is 30 June 2022.


RadoNorm 2nd annual meeting (5-7 October 2022, Munich, Germany)2022-06-15T10:52:10+00:00

RadoNorm project under EURATOM Horizon 2020 aims at managing risk from radon and NORM exposure situations to assure effective radiation protection based on improved scientific evidence and social considerations. RadoNorm 2nd  annual meeting will be held in Munich from 5 to 7 October 2022.

European Radiation Protection Week 2022 (9-14 October 2022, Estoril, Portugal)2022-06-15T10:51:44+00:00

ERPW 2022 will be a major gathering of experts, addressing burning and emerging topics and multidisciplinary issues in Radiation Protection, at times when integration and harmonization of radiation protection and the effective implementation of a European Radiation Research Area are at stake. ERPW2022 will take place in Estoril (Portugal).

The European research platforms are closely involved in the organisation of the event, together with the international organisations and institutions. Deadline for abstract submission was 31st May 2022.

Our mission


The mission of SHARE is to stimulate the integration of social sciences and humanities (SSH) in research, practice and policy related to ionizing radiation, including, for example: radiation protection, low dose risk, radioecology, emergency preparedness and response, dosimetry, medical applications, radioactive waste management, nuclear energy production, safety, NORM, site remediation etc.

To this end, SHARE structures and enhances dialogue at the European level and beyond, among the different stakeholders, fostering the sharing of knowledge and information among various disciplines working on aspects of ionizing radiation.
