NEA International Radiological Protection School (IRPS)
Organised by NEA, in cooperation with the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority and the Stockholm University
Online training course
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 edition of the IRPS will be held entirely online. The application period was extended until 9 May at midnight (CEST).
Some background on the IRPS:
Understanding the spirit of the system of Radiological Protection (RP) is an integral component of its effective application. A wide variety of guidance and standards documents related to the RP system are available. The technical facts are provided in these documents but how the different elements have evolved, and the full body of understanding that they reflect, are not well documented. In order to appropriately apply the RP system to planned, existing and emergency exposure situations, such aspects – the nuances, history and between-the-line meanings – need to be fully understood by tomorrow's leaders in order to progress in the radiological protection field.
The objective of the IRPS is to have the experts who contributed to the RP system’s creation provide an historical overview of how and why the RP system evolved, as well as a deep understanding of what the system is intended to mean. The course will result in participants having deeper understanding of: the foundation of the international RP framework; how the RP system’s key features are applied in RP regulation and implementation; the state-of-the-art in RP science; differences and similarities of principles and standards at the international and national levels. Discussions will also explore the evolution of the RP system.
