EURADOS e. V. is registered in the German Register of Societies as a non-profit association for promoting research and development and European cooperation in the field of the dosimetry of ionising radiation.
The aims of EURADOS are in particular:
- to increase the scientific understanding of the dosimetry of ionising radiation,
- to foster the technical development of dosimetric methods and instrumentation and their implementation in routine dosimetry,
- and to harmonise the dosimetric procedures used within the EU and their conformance with international practices.
We maintain a network which includes experts, reference and research laboratories, and dosimetry services. This enables appropriate specialist groups to be formed in a timely manner to solve problems or promote research identified within EURADOS or upon request from external bodies.
Strategic Research Agenda (SRA)
Visions for radiation dosimetry over the next two decades - Strategic Research Agenda of the European Radiation Dosimetry Group: Version 2020
The Roadmap indicates – in a general and often graphic way - a pathway which illustrates the major steps for the achievement of strategic objectives and how the SRA may be carried out.
