    SCK CEN is now part of 'Citizen Science Incubator'

    Social scientists launch 6 citizen initiatives against
    Radon problems in Europe via RadoNorm

    Citizen science: we all witnessed clever projects with the Flemish 'CurieuzeNeuzen' or 'ObsIdentify'. Did you know that you can also add 'RadoNorm' to that list? The consortium including our own social scientists previously launched 4 successful citizen science pilot projects and is now taking it a step further. "RadoNorm will take on the role of 'citizen science incubator' where we are rolling out as many as 6 European Radon protection initiatives. Some of them will start as early as September 2023," said SCK CEN experts Tanja Perko and Mabel Akosua Hoedoafia.
