The EURANOS project started in 2004 as a project of the Sixth Research, Technological development and Demonstration Framework Programme (FP6) of the European Commission and it was also funded by 23 European Member States, started in April 2004.
It integrated 17 national emergency management organisations with 33 research institutes, to bring together best practice, knowledge and technology to enhance the preparedness for Europe’s response to any radiation emergency and long term rehabilitation.
Key aims of the project:
Collate information on the likely effectiveness and consequences of a wide range of countermeasures
- Provide guidance to emergency management organisations and decision makers on the establishment of an appropriate response strategy
- Further enhance advanced decision support systems through feedback from their operational use
- Create regional initiatives leading to information exchange based on state-of-the-art information technologies
- Develop guidance which assists Member States in developing a framework for the sustainable rehabilitation of living conditions in contaminated areas
- Maintain and enhance knowledge and competence through emergency exercises, training and education, thus fostering best practice in emergency response.
