Checkpoint for EU radioactivity research

Researchers from seven European countries have met in Bath, England, to discuss efforts to create a framework for assessing environmental impacts of radioactive contamination. The scientists are half-way through an EU-funded project called Fasset, to be completed by October 2003. After discussions with stakeholders, including Greenpeace and nuclear services firm BNFL, Fasset coordinator Carl-Magnus Larsson said he was "convinced that we are making progress" towards a generally agreed framework. This will apply to both existing and new projects, as well as support policy makers, for example under the Ospar convention (EED 29/06/00). See Fasset.
