Pedro Vaz, Researcher of C2TN, was recently re-appointed member of the Group of Scientific Experts on Radiological Protection until the end of 2025, in the framework of Article 31 of the Euratom Treaty. This Group brings together specialists in the Radiological Protection area, who are nominally identified from European countries and do not represent particular institutions, and includes members representative of several international organizations (AEA, WHO, ICRP, IRPA, among others).
The Group, operating under the auspices of the European Commission (DG-ENER), has an advisory nature and is required to give its opinion on scientific, technical and regulatory aspects associated with radiological protection topics in multiple areas (e.g. medical applications, radon, radiological emergencies, regulations on radioactivity in food, nuclear safety). Additionally, the Group supports the elaboration and implementation of European Directives in the above-mentioned areas.
