Abstract

This paper describes the objectives, and reviews the progress, of the European project 'Treatment Initiatives After Radiological Accidents' (TIARA). TIARA forms part of the 'Preparatory Action for Security Research' (PASR) launched by the European Commission in 2004. The Preparatory Action is intended to reach preliminary conclusions on the needs for the security of EU citizens. It prepared a comprehensive Security Research Programme as part of the Commission's Seventh Framework Programme proposal, which was adopted in 2006 and launched in 2007. The principal purpose of TIARA is to constitute a European network that will participate in facilitating the management of a crisis in the event of the malevolent dispersal of radionuclides into the public environment.
