The 7th International Conference on radiation in varies field of research was held in Herceg Novi, Montenegro from 10 to 14 June 2019, chaired by Prof. Dr. Goran Ristic from the University of Nis, Serbia.
RAD is an event where NCRRP employees always participate with pleasure, because there is an exchange of information and ideas between colleagues and friends from different countries.
Interest in the scientific forum was high and the number of participants exceeded 300 people from 40 countries, China, Japan, Brazil incl. The program included 23 scientific sessions with papers and posters. Special sessions were provided on radiobiology, radiation protection, radiation measurement, radon and toron, radiation effects, radiation in medicine, environmental chemistry, etc.
As guest speakers were invited specialists from different fields. The “Atmospheric deposition of radionuclides – assessment based on passive moss biomonitoring presented” presented by M.
