    Welcome to the STAR project webpage

    www.star-radioecology.org 

    This is your gateway to accessing the outputs of the STrategy for Allied Radioecology (STAR) network of excellence (NoE)
    funded under the European Commission EURATOM programme

    For other on-line radiation protection and radioecological resources please go to the Radioecology Exchange


    Join us for an exciting 3 days of radioecology in beautiful Aix-en-Provence, 9-11 June 2015!

    The STAR network of excellence on radioecology will present the results of the 4.5 year research programme and discuss with the wider community the continued integration of radioecology with other radiation protection disciplines.

    The programme will be a mix of presentations, discussions, posters, interactive demonstrations and social events.

    Come meet a large number of radioecologists and members of the larger radiation protection community, learn about the recent STAR research results and modelling tools, and join in the scientific debates.
    The preliminary program can be consulted here.

    We hope to see you in Aix-en-Provence!

    The places are limited and assigned on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

    Please fill in the registration form  and return it to laureline.fevrier by 15 May 2015

    Attendance is free of charge, but travel and accommodation must be covered by the participant.
    Some hotel prices have been negotiated if you reserve your room before the 25th of April.

    STAR will INFLUENCE the course of radiocology by:

    APPROACHING
    our science in a new, integrated way.

    ADDRESSING
    complex research priorities that only a consortium of partners can accomplish.

    INFLUENCING
    the future direction of research via a long term strategic research agenda.

    STAR will OFFSET the decline of radioecology by:

    INSPIRING 
    the interest of youth to participate in our science.

    EDUCATING
    stakeholders about the value of our science.

    INTEGRATING
    nine organisations from eight countries, taking advantage of our diverse cultures, approaches, locations, expertise and interests. The integration will support the radioecological needs of industry, national authorities, non-governmental organisations, scientists, and the public.

     

    STAR will PROMOTE INTEGRATION by:

    NETWORKING AND PROMOTING
    scientific excellence to benefit human and environmental radiation protection. 

    The STAR project has seven interlinked work packages. A vital role of STAR is to develop a transition plan towards sustainability and long term funding for radioecological research, infrastructure and training and education. This requires a permanent management structure which will continue after the STAR (and COMET) projects finish. This is provided by (the Radioecology Alliance) and Information on membership is available here.
