DSCN1407-mFrom 2nd - 4th December 2017, the 13th International Workshop on Ionizing Radiation Monitoring was held in Oarai, Japan.
The workshop, organised by Chiyoda Technol Corporation, was attended by more than 200 participants from 21 countries. A group of five Croatian representatives from the Ruđer Bošković Institute (Radiation Chemistry and Dosimetry Laboratory) and the Srebrnjak Children's Hospital actively and very successfully participated in the workshop by delivering presentations in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation.

The Ruđer Bošković Institute (Radiation Chemistry and Dosimetry Laboratory) has a long-term research cooperation with the Chiyoda Technol Corporation in the area of fundamental and applicative research in luminescence dosimetry which has been reviewed and reaffirmed every year, starting from 2007, by signing a cooperation agreement.
This cooperation is one of the best examples of cooperation between Croatian and Japanese science and business actors which will hopefully contribute to increasing of similar cooperation projects in the future.

“ Pollen is in the air: invasive plants and allergy in our changing environment ”

The two-day conference of the EU funded project Atopica taking place in Brussels on March 5-6th, 2015

A group of cellular and molecular biologists, immunologists, allergists, dermatologists, physicists, climate and air quality experts and land use specialists joint their efforts in a cross-disciplinary approach for the first time in Europe tackling the connection between pollen-related allergies, global and regional climate, air quality and land use and how to meet the health and environmental challenges of invasive alien species (IAS) invading Europe and other related issues.

You are invited to join the Atopica team at their conference and learn about the combined impact of changes in climate, land use and air pollution on the highly invasive weed Ambrosia artemisiifolia (common ragweed) and its consequences on health.

The Atopica conference will take place in Brussels, Belgium, at the Committee of the Regions, with the consortium reporting to journalists, policy makers, members of parliament and interested citizens. The conference will be a two-day event featuring talks by Atopica members, invited speakers and will include workshops, posters and round table sessions.
