Cores symposium on non-ionizing radiation research and safety

20-21 November 2018, Kuopio, Finland

Cores Symposium on non-ionizing radiation (NIR) research and safety took place 20-21 November 2018 at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. The aim of the symposium was to review the state-of-the-art of research on non-ionising radiation safety and to celebrate and honor the outstanding career of Prof. Jukka Juutilainen who has been pioneering this research line in Finland.

Links to presentations given at the symposium are provided here together with a summary of the symposium and recommendations for research needed.
