With the IRPA-14 Congress in Cape Town just behind us, preparations for the 5th European IRPA Congress that will take place in The Hague from 4-8 June 2018 are intensified. It is the aim of Dutch Society for Radiation Protection (NVS) to organize an event that will prove to be a worthy successor in a series of successful European congresses that started in Florence, 2002. The central theme of our congress will be Encouraging Sustainability in Radiation Protection.
Members of NSFS are invited to participate in the preparations by taking part in the group of corresponding members of the Scientific Program Committee (SPC), chaired by Lars Roobol. If you are interested, please notify the NSFS Board before 15 August 2016.
At the international IRPA conference in South Africa in May 2016, NSFS presented its history and work in a poster.
