Among the topics covered, radiation in the health sector, decommissioning, accidents and their consequences, environmental radioactivity, electromagnetic fields.
The Inspectorate, involved in the scientific committee of the event, also participates with a poster entitled: "An ISIN document for raising awareness on the problems of radon and radioactivity addressed, at national level, to students of upper secondary schools ". The poster illustrates the contents of a project which, aimed at students, deals with various aspects related to the presence of radon in homes.
The text of the project, divided into twelve paragraphs, also contains some in-depth boxes that adopt the system of questions to experts in the field on quality management systems, artificial radioactivity, radon mapping, geology and physics questions and privacy. The document is completed by some informative materials of a qualified technical-scientific level, which intend to transmit to the students the information considered most significant on radon and radioactivity, available online and integrated by tools for self-verification, not only theoretical, of knowledge acquired.
The meeting of the AIRP, which will end on 1 October, proposes the Youth Award, reserved for under 40s, which will be awarded to the best work on the subject of radiation protection.
