Strategic research agenda for Social Sciences and Humanities in radiation protection

Theme leads: Sisko Salomaa, Sisko.Salomaa@uef.fi and Christiane Pölzl-Viol, cpoelzl@bfs.de

In this session, the current strategic research agenda for Social Sciences and Humanities will be presented and its further development will be discussed. The Strategic Research Agenda for SSH was initiated and developed throughout 2016 under the remit of the "CONCERT - European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research" programme. The current version of the SRA reflects the outcome of the multiple discussions between SSH researchers throughout Europe and of a broader stakeholder discussion with representatives of various groups on several occasions. This process of exchange, knowledge sharing, discussion and further development of the SRA will be continued at RICOMET 2017 and we invite your participation. 

We are keen to learn from the projects, experiences and ideas of all participants to assure the SRA is representative of the priorities and targets of the SSH communities and their stakeholders. The SRA for radiation protection is now made available to RICOMET 2017 participants (D 2.6 Part 2 SSH Joint research needs and priorities), providing time for consideration prior to the conference.

Discussions will be structured to ensure they remain productive and additional sessions and other forms of interaction will be timetabled to enable non-participants in the stream to contribute to, and feedback on, the emerging document. Our aim is to ensure that the SRA acknowledges the current state of the art, represents the best available starting points for future research and moreover captures the appropriate range of relevant topics and foci. The collaboratively-produced and revised SRA will be the outcome of the RICOMET 2017 meeting.
