'Autumn Schools' of the Polish Radiation Research Society

 

The PRRS 'Autumn Schools' are very special events for the Society, which are targeted at both the PRRS members and the general public. The Schools’ programmes have covered various topics concerning fundamental and applied radiation research, radiation technology, and radiation protection. Until now, the Schools have been attended by over 1600 participants, some 400 lectures have been given, and over 160 reports have been presented by the attendees. The Autumn School lectures are usually published as separate monographs.
