ETHOS is a pilot research project supported by the radiation protection research program of the European Commission (DG XII).
The project provides an alternative approach to the rehabilitation of living conditions in the contaminated territories of the CIS in the post-accident context of Chernobyl.
Initiated at the beginning of 1996, this 3-y project is currently being implemented in the Republic of Belarus.
The ETHOS project involves an interdisciplinary team of European researchers from the following institutions : the Centre d'étude sur l'Evaluation de la Protection dans le domaine Nucléaire CEPN (radiological protection, economics), the Institute National d'Agronomie de Paris-Grignon INAPG (agronomy, nature & life management), the Compiègne University of Technology (technological and industrial safety, social trust), and the Mutadis Research Group (sociology, social risk management), which is in charge of the scientific co-ordination of the project.
The Belarussian partners in the ETHOS project include the Ministry of Emergencies of Belarus as well as the various local authorities involved with the implementation site.
The ETHOS project relies on a strong involvement of the local population in the rehabilitation process.
Its main goal is to create conditions for the inhabitants of the contaminated territories to reconstruct their overall quality of life. (...)
