In 2017, EEAE begun to implement the institutional project entitled "Assessment of the national system for protection against ionizing and non-ionizing radiation – awareness-raising actions” (code name “AVRA”). The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund under the "Strategic Development Action of Research and Technological Organizations" of the program "Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competitiveness".
The AVRA project aims at (a) establishing a systematic approach for the overall assessment of the radiation protection system and the impact of regulatory framework on the economy and society; and (b) raising awareness among the public and specific target groups on radiation, mainly through pioneering education and information actions.
In particular, the AVRA project includes the following axes:
- National public opinion survey about the knowledge and the perception on radiation risks.
- Establishment of key indicators for the assessment of the national radiation protection system.
- Training and information by the means of new technologies.
- Dissemination of the program results.
