Radioactivity and the Environment (RATE) Workshop

Opportunity to participate in a workshop to feedback on the NERC/RWM/EA funded Radioactivity and the Environment (RATE) research programme and identify future research priorities for radioactivity in the environment.

This is an invitation for individuals to submit expressions of interest to attend one of a series of workshops in February to input into the findings of the RATE research programme and identify future research priorities associated with radioactivity in the environment. We are looking to invite attendees that will have an appropriate expertise balance and association with radioactivity in the environment and related fields.

Spaces in this workshop are limited so if you would like to partake please register for one of the events.

Event information

The key outcomes of the workshop are:

(1) Dissemination of RATE research

(2) Highlight the application of RATE research

(3) Identify collective problems associated with Radioactivity and the Environment and establish future research priorities

Please feel free to circulate this invitation to anyone who may be interested.
The deadline for submissions is 12th December and confirmation of attendance and venue will be sent before December 20th.

The work conducted within RATE focusses on fractures in the subsurface environment, biogeochemical processes associated with radionuclides in the environment, transport and transfer of radionuclides in the natural environment and the effects of radiation to wildlife. For details on the RATE programme see the BGS website or Knowledge exchange website.
