Presentations of the ISO-FOOD Summer School

 

Objectives

Determining the activity concentration of particular radionuclides in food and water is important to be able to study the cumulative radiation effects on human health, since the dose coefficients are always related to specific radionuclides. European legislation requires that member states obtain information about activity concentrations of radionuclides in food, feed and water. This summer school aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to carry out these tasks.

Topics

#1 Legislation

#2 Analytical techniques for determination of natural and man-made radionuclides

#3 Separation procedures

#4 Interpretation of results

#5 Statistics

#6 Uncertainty estimation

#7 Traceability and use of reference materials

#8 Interlaboratory comparison

Experience based learning

Both theory and practice will be combined throughout the course to give participants the opportunity to put the concepts learned into practice. Participants are encouraged to bring their own specific case studies/problems. Throughout the school participants work in small teams.

Participants profile

The summer school is designed for researchers (doctoral and postdoctoral level) and application scientist i.e. from the National Reference Laboratories and the Control Laboratories. A working knowledge of English is essential. Participants are requested to familiarise themselves with the ISO/IEC 17025 Standard.
