Role in the project

CIEMAT activities in radiological protection extend to the workers, the public and the environment through studies on radioecology, evaluation and reduction of radiological impacts, environmental radioactivity measurement, as well as personal and environmental dosimetry. CIEMAT has also an important activity in education and training of professionals (radiation protection, radioactive waste management, nuclear safety). Within CONCERT, CIEMAT will participate in WP2 (Tasks 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.6); WP3 (Task 3.2 and 3.3), WP6 (participation in Task 6.1 and 6.3; leading Subtask 6.1.2); WP7 (Task 7.5).
