Related networks and initiatives
The IAEA Network of Environmental Management and Remediation (ENVIRONET) was created to inspire countries to share their knowledge and experience as well as to promote and facilitate collaboration and better conditions for implementing environmental remediation projects.
Within ENVIRONET, a project dedicated to NORM has been initiated. The Terms of Reference (ToR) of the ENVIRONET NORM Project can be downloaded here. Contact the Project Chair, Karen Smith (Argonne National Laboratory, USA), or the Scientific Secretary at the IAEA, Horst Monken Fernandes for further information.
The main objective of the COST Action NORM4Building is the exchange of multidisciplinary knowledge and experiences to stimulate the reuse of NORM residues in new tailor-made sustainable building materials in the construction sector while considering exposure to external gamma radiation and the resulting indoor air quality.
The European Joint Research Project MetroNORM focuses on the development of new traceable, accurate and standardized measurement methods and systems, emphasizing in-situ applications.
The European Radon Association (ERA) aims at serving the interests of the European radon community.
The European ALARA Network (EAN) has been created by the European Commission to further specific European research on topics dealing with optimization of all types of occupational exposure, as well as to facilitate the dissemination of good ALARA practices within all sectors of the European industry and research.
