Occupational Radiation Protection Networks (ORPNET)

The Occupational Radiation Protection Networks (ORPNET) promote the optimisation of occupational radiation protection. They provide comprehensive information about worldwide, regional, and national networks and systems related to the radiation protection of workers, while also enabling participating networks to cooperate with each other. They also feature information about upcoming meetings, new publications, joint projects, posters, and other related news.
