Online Seminar 12 & 13 October 2020 09:00 CEST
EMPIR project ‘Metrology for radon monitoring’ (16ENV10, MetroRADON) is working to provide traceable measurement and new calibration procedures for the monitoring of radon. The overall objective of the project is to enable traceable monitoring at low radon activity concentrations, in support of the European Council directive 2013/59/EURATOM (EU-BSS).
The project consortium is pleased to be running a radon monitoring web workshop and radon measurement training web seminar on consecutive days in October 2020.
Who should attend
Those from industry, academia, regulatory bodies and scientific sectors with an interest in metrology for radon monitoring.
You are welcome to register for one or both events.
