From 2nd - 4th December 2017, the 13th International Workshop on Ionizing Radiation Monitoring was held in Oarai, Japan. The workshop, organised by Chiyoda Technol Corporation, was attended by more than 200 participants from 21 countries. A group of five Croatian representatives from the Ruder Boškovic Institute (Radiation Chemistry and Dosimetry Laboratory) and the Children’s Hospital Srebrnjak actively and very successfully participated in the workshop by delivering presentations in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation.
The Ruder Boškovic Institute (Radiation Chemistry and Dosimetry Laboratory) has a long-term research cooperation with the Chiyoda Technol Corporation in the area of fundamental and applicative research in luminescence dosimetry which has been reviewed and reaffirmed every year, starting from 2007, by signing a cooperation agreement. This cooperation is one of the best examples of cooperation between Croatian and Japanese science and business actors which will hopefully contribute to increasing of similar cooperation projects in the future.
