The key aim of RadoNorm is to provide answers to open questions related to radon and NORM exposure of humans and the environment and to provide sound, feasible and applicable solutions for radiation risk reduction which are widely acceptable for the individuals and the public.
RadoNorm project under EURATOM Horizon 2020 aims at managing risk from radon and NORM exposure situations to assure effective radiation protection based on improved scientific evidence and social considerations.
RadoNorm is designed to initiate and perform research and technical development in support of European Union Member States, Associated Countries and the European Commission in their efforts to implement the European radiation protection Basic Safety Standards. The proposed multidisciplinary and inclusive research project will target all relevant steps of the radiation risk management cycle for radon and NORM exposure situations. RadoNorm aims to reduce scientific, technical and societal uncertainties by:
- initiating and performing research and technical developments,
- integrating education and training in all research and development activities, and
- disseminating the project achievements through targeted actions to the public, stakeholders and regulators.
This will strengthen the scientific and technical basis for all key steps of the radiation risk management cycle for radon and NORM. The inclusive character of RadoNorm is given at different levels, by (i) targeting research and development on all steps of the management cycle, (ii) combining biomedical, and ecological research with mitigation development and social science research, (iii) integration of researchers from national radiation protection institutions, research centres, universities, and SME, (iv) incorporation of E&T activities in all undertakings, and (v) linking dissemination efforts directly to knowledge achievements and new recommendations.

The first publication of RadoNorm is the result of Task 6.3.1 on citizen science which has the aim to establish a citizen science toolkit for radon prone areas and a network of citizen science projects to address radon. The partners in this task have examined and...
To achieve our objectives, RadoNorm project is structured in eight work packages (WP) spanning 60 months and focused around all steps of the risk management cycle to improving radiation risk knowledge and management for radon and NORM.
WP9 Ethics Requirements
This work package sets out the ‘ethics requirements’ related to studies with animal and human that the project must comply with.
Objective of WP9
The objective is to ensure compliance with the ‘ethics requirements’ set out in this work package. RadoNorm can count on the advices of the RadoNorm Ethics Committee
RadoNorm adopts a multidisciplinary approach that covers the following disciplines required for proper exposure and risk assessment, risk management and risk communication of radon and NORM:
- Sociatal Aspects
E&T Communication Dissemination
Towards Effective Radiation Protection
- Public access buildings
