Aims of Cores

Cores, Finnish Consortium for Radiation Safety Research, is strengthening the cooperation between research institutions and universities.

By joining forces, STUK, the universities and other Cores members aim to secure the continuity of the radiation safety research in Finland. This ensures that Finland maintains the national competence and that the Finnish research retains its high level position within international research community.

Radiation safety covers a variety of scientific disciplines, ranging from radiation and nuclear physics to biomedicine, environmental sciences and social sciences and humanities. The national universities provide a strong foundation of basic disciples. This competence will be integrated with the societal challenges of radiation safety research.
