NSFS conference 2019 - next level in radiation protection

The Nordic Society for Radiation Protection NSFS is a member of IRPA (the International Radiation Protection Association). The aim of the society is dedicated to the development and dissemination of knowledge and experience on protection against ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. This work is mainly done through arranging general meetings (conferences) within the Nordic countries, where members can meet and exchange views and information.

A NSFS Conference is held every four years and the 2019 Conference will take place at the Hanaholmen Cultural Centre in Espoo near Helsinki, Finland. The theme of the 2019 NSFS Conference is “Next Level in Radiation Protection”.

TIME – 10-14 June 2019 LOCATION – Hanaholmen (Espoo), Finland MORE INFO – Event website >

IAEA MODARIA II 4th Technical Meeting
TIME – 21-24 October 2019 LOCATION – IAEA Headquarters, Vienna International Centre MORE INFO – Event website >
