The CONCERT European Joint Programme (EJP) for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research under Horizon 2020, operates as an umbrella structure for the research initiatives jointly launched by the European radiation protection research platforms (MELODI, ALLIANCE, NERIS, EURADOS and EURAMED). This joint research effort in key areas will help to stimulate an active dialogue with all parties with a significant interest in radiation protection.
In the context of this active dialogue, we would like to invite you to participate in the survey linked below, aiming to gauge the perception of nuclear and radiological risk amongst a wide range of people and their opinion on related issues such as communication and information received by different actors.
It should take approximately 10-12 minutes of your time. Your results will be kept confidential and used only for research purposes. Your participation is very valuable and greatly appreciated.

Building on the success of SOFT Innovation Prize in 2014 and 2016, the European Commission launches today the third edition of the SOFT Innovation Prize under Euratom Work Programme 2018. Prize contest is open to the world and invites international fusion researchers from all ITER partner countries and any third country, which has a bilateral fusion cooperation with Euratom. It sets no specific category, but is rather interested in any physics or technology innovation related to fusion with a potential for further exploitation.
At the meeting the fission part of the Euratom Work Programme 2018 (Call for proposals NFRP 2018) and horizontal issues related to the implementation of the programme were presented.

The new Horizon 2020 work programme 2018 – 2020 and EURATOM work programme 2018 were published on the 27th of October 2017. As a prompt reaction to this, the National Information Day on ENERGY and EURATOM was organised by the Technology Centre CAS in Prague, Czech Republic.
The Fission and Radiation protection part took place in the afternoon part of the event. About fifty participants listened to Rita Lečbychová, head of Unit G.4 of DG RTD. Her presentation was consecrated to Euratom Research and Training Programme 2014 – 2018, the policies and general objectives. She presented a thorough analysis of the results of the EURATOM programme, as well as the topics for the following year – 2018. Examples of specific call conditions were included, as well as recommendations concerning ethical issues. there was also space for questions and answers.
Analyst from the TC CAS, Daniel Frank, concentrated on the participation of the teams from the Czech Republic in the activity EURATOM. He presented also the list of successful participant from the Czech Republic in H2020 EURATOM projects.
We could hear from the most successful participants, the organisation Research Centre Řež, about one of their projects (altogether they are involved in 16 EURATOM projects in H2020). The project M4F deals with a cross-cutting issue of fusion/fission, and was presented by Lukáš Veselý and Petra Bublíková.
The INSIDER project dealing with waste minimisation was presented by Peter Kiška and Monika Mazánová from the Czech Institute of Metrology. The institution is included also in EMPIR (European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research) projects.
The programme was ended by a joined presentation of Veronika Korittová and Eva Kudrnová from TC CAS on partner search instruments, including the possibilities offered by Enterprise Europe Network, and last but not least, the common partner search instrument for Energy and EURATOM on C-ENERGY web page.
