In the area of radiation protection, many subjects influence laypeople´s attitudes. In the last years, media became a powerful player in this field. In this perspective the problem arises that it is possible to misuse the media for political or ideological purposes. The Czech Republic faced a professional disinformation campaign in the field of radiation protection for the first time in 2017.

A system has been developed by SÚRO in the collaboration with the company Envinet, a.s. (now NUVIA) for the large-scale monitoring of accidental radioiodine thyroid dose in population. Six gamma-ray spectrometry scintillation units equipped with collimators are connected to at least two PC stations for registration of measured subjects and operation of the units.

The new automatic high efficiency gamma spectrometric measuring system was developed in close cooperation of SURO, Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics, Czech Technical University in Prague and NUVIA company. The equipment is intended for sensitive measurement in deep underground laboratories such as LSM Modane (“Zero dose environment“).

Low radon cleanroom for surface or underground laboratories is a new technology able to achieve at the same time very low aerosol concentrations in terms of ISO standard (ISO 1999) and very low radon concentration levels of 10-100 mBq·m-3  (reduce radon concentration in comparison to outdoor by a factor 1000).

26 Apr 2021 | SURO

In the field of emergency preparedness we can see a general trend to maximize utilization of continuous measurements performed by automatic and autonomous devices. National Radiation Protection Institute (SURO) in collaboration with NUVIA introduced an automatic “stand-alone” system for continuous monitoring of artificial gamma radioactivity in surface water bodies.

The SafeG project was recently approved for co-financing by the EC within the H2020 Euratom programme. SafeG project, coordinated by VUJE company, gathers 15 research organizations and universities from Europe and Japan. The global objective is to further develop the GFR technology and strengthen its safety by solving the open issues concerning the GFR technology and it´s demonstrator ALLEGRO.
