The 2023 edition of the IRPS took place in person in Stockholm, Sweden from 14-18 August 2023, in co-operation with the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) and the Centre for Radiation Protection Research (CRPR) of Stockholm University.
The programme of the IRPS 2023 was designed to provide participants with a thorough understanding of the international radiological protection system, how it is intended to be interpreted for application in diverse and emerging circumstances and how it is evolving based on new scientific knowledge and lessons learnt. The school was driven by the same spirit of knowledge transfer as the previous editions: preparing tomorrow's leading experts in radiological protection by learning from today's experts. Comprehensive lectures and illustrative interactive case studies were delivered by renowned experts in the multidisciplinary area of radiological protection.
All participants have access to an online platform with diverse learning material to prepare prior to the school. This platform is opened to admitted participants.
Approaching its fifth anniversary, the IRPS has already provided a unique educational opportunity to more than 150 young or mid-career professionals and graduate students from around the world in four editions.
