The Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences
The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences has been organizing since 2000 the serial conferences, traditionally called RADON IN THE ENVIRONMENT. In 2000 and 2005 there were national conferences. This is the fourth international meeting; the previous ones took place in Zakopane, Poland (2009) and in Kraków (2015, 2019).
Research on radon/thoron and its progeny has been conducted all over the world for many years. The conference is expected to provide a forum to explore and discuss new scientific initiatives. European Union Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom laid down Basic Safety Standards (EU BSS) for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation. Under the new Directive radon takes on particular significance. Thus, we hope that our conference will be a helpful scientific meeting for all participants.
