The FP7 project EAGLE is closed. With great pleasure we present our final results published in the deliverables section. Our deliverables include recommendations intended to help European actors in the field of ionizing radiation to move closer to a citizen-centered communication process, supporting better informed decision-making about ionizing radiation risks.
These recommendations are formulated based on results from the EAGLE activities conducted throughout the entire project duration. They integrate EAGLE stakeholders’ feedback and have been agreed by the EAGLE stakeholders, including the EAGLE advisory board. In addition, most of the work was peer-reviewed and published in different scientific journals. The recommendations will be published in a special booklet shortly after the end of the EAGLE project.
The recommendations are mostly addressed to source institutions (official communicators), and thereby reflect a standard of quality that other communication actors - media and civil society representatives - can ask for.
The EAGLE recommendations are available via this link.
In addition, EAGLE and its stakeholders recognized the need for establishing a European Platform for the integration of Social Sciences and Humanities in research related to Ionising Radiation in order to assist in responsible research and innovation in the field of ionizing radiation and, in this way, contribute to improved ionizing radiation risk governance. The EAGLE partners and stakeholders will continue the work towards establishment of the Platform after the EAGLE project and hope to receive support in this from the EC.
The EAGLE consortium members would like to thank Advisory Board members, the EAGLE stakeholders, the participants to media workshops, citizens’ dialogues and pilot studies, teachers, radiation protection and other experts, as well as the participants to the RICOMET conferences, for their attendance and valuable input. We thank to the editorial board of Journal of Radiological Protection to publish a special section related to the EAGLE results presented at the RICOMET 2015 conference and open these scientific article for public access.
Project start date: August 12, 2013 - Duration: 36 Months
