The RICOMET 2016 Conference reaffirmed: 

  • The complexity of radiological protection issues, which require a trans-disciplinary research approach, integrating natural sciences with social sciences and humanities (SSH). 
  • The importance of informed decisions at all levels.
  • That accepted, sustainable decisions need to address stakeholder concerns visibly and transparently.
  • The value and utility of bottom-up, national stakeholder panels to discuss issues and identify key elements to be addressed through research. 
  • The need to develop attractive educational programmes related to ionising radiation for different public. 
  • The value of a self-sustainable Social Sciences and Humanities network.
After a great success of the first two RICOMET conferences we are discussing with different partners about possibilities to organise the RICOMET 2017 conference. More information will follow soon.
