    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

    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 workpackages. 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.
