Effective use of dose projection tools in the preparedness and response to nuclear and radiological emergencies

Open for proposals

Project Type

Coordinated Research Project

Project Code

J15002

CRP

2282

Approved Date

15 July 2019

Status

2 - New - Collecting or Evaluating proposals

Description

This CRP will support IAEA Member States, the IAEA Secretariat and other International Organizations to more effectively use dose projection tools in nuclear and radiological emergency preparedness and response (EPR), by improving their performance in its use for EPR related purposes and by better understanding the strengths and limitations of the information they may provide.

Objectives

Providing scientific evidence, e.g. by comparing results from dose projection tools with real data obtained from past events and expert judgement, on the potential and limitations of these models, as well as the main factors influencing those limitations

Specific objectives

Better understanding and defining possible improvements of their use at both the preparedness phase and the response stage for different Emergency Preparedness Categories and events

Perform a benchmark analysis of different dose projection tools against the releases and actual radiological conditions observed in past emergencies, as available
