STAR

The STAR project finished on 31st July 2015 - page no longer being updated other than STAR publications

Welcome to the STAR project webpage  

This is your gateway to accessing the outputs of the STrategy for Allied Radioecology (STAR) network of excellence (NoE) funded under the European Commission EURATOM programme. 

The project finished on 31st July 2015  and the only page which will be upadated is the STAR publication list

STAR will INFLUENCE the course of radiocology by:

APPROACHING 
our science in a new, integrated way.

ADDRESSING 
complex research priorities that only a consortium of partners can accomplish.

INFLUENCING 
the future direction of research via a long term strategic research agenda

STAR will OFFSET the decline of radioecology by:

INSPIRING 
the interest of youth to participate in our science.

EDUCATING 
stakeholders about the value of our science.

INTEGRATING 
nine organisations from eight countries, taking advantage of our diverse cultures, approaches, locations, expertise and interests. The integration will support the radioecological needs of industry, national authorities, non-governmental organisations, scientists, and the public.

STAR will PROMOTE INTEGRATION by:

NETWORKING AND PROMOTING
scientific excellence to benefit human and environmental radiation protection. 

The STAR project has seven interlinked work packages. A vital role of STAR is to develop a transition plan towards sustainability and long term funding for radioecological research, infrastructure and training and education. This requires a permanent management structure which will continue after the STAR (and COMET) projects finish. This is provided by (the Radioecology Alliance) and Information on membership is available here.
