Task 7.1 - Attracting and retaining students and junior scientists into the Radiation Protection research fields

(Lead by Andrzej Wojcik, Stockholm University, Sweden)

This task is formed of 2 subtasks.  The first is managing a programme of travel grants that are awarded on a competitive basis to junior scientists to attend conferences and training courses.  Grants are provided as financial support to individuals on the basis of actual costs of travel and subsistence.  The call for applications for travel grants is now open. 

A flyer is available for distribution to any young research scientists or students who may be interested, and can be downloaded here.

The second subtask will be investigating the possibility of increasing transferability within the EU states in order to facilitate cross-crediting university course modules (such as the MScs in Radiobiology and Radioecology), and work towards full mutual recognition of pre-requisites and degrees. Dialogue with institutions involved will be maintained through a regular forum.
