Call for Papers
To fully benefit from the peaceful uses of ionising radiation that are applied in industry, healthcare, agriculture and research, and nuclear power generation, both people and the environment need to be protected. Education and training in radiation protection is therefore essential to building and maintaining the competent workforce that is necessary for establishing and maintaining the safe and well-regulated working environment that is demanded by modern society. The importance of education and training has been acknowledged for many years, and a wide range of programmes and initiatives have been established at the national, regional and international level.
ETRAP 2017 provides a forum for decision makers, regulators, educational and training providers and practitioners, researchers, radiation protection experts and persons from international organizations to discuss the current state of the art in education and training in radiation protection. The conference aims to identify trends and good practices in the area while looking to the future so that society can continue to benefit from the many uses of ionizing radiation.
Contributions are particularly welcome on the following topics related to education and training in radiation protection:
Latest developments in education and training in radiation protection
Education and training needs of young professionals working in radiation protection
Long term impact of education and training in radiation protection and its sustainability
Methodology of risk communication - ethics of education and training, trainer responsibilities
Tools and resources, methodology of training (forms of learning, approaches with different audiences and sectors)
Need for qualification, certification and accreditation
Collaborations, networks and platforms: activities and achievements
Integration of social sciences and humanities in radiation protection education and training
Radiation protection information to stakeholders, pupils and the public
How to attract the young generation
Informed decision making
