There is a large and growing community in Europe of professionals such as scientists, technologists, public health officials and decision makers working in the radon field. Their areas of interest range from epidemiology, radiation dosimetry, instrument development and measurement protocols, remediation and prevention construction technologies to control strategies and regulation.

In recognition of this the European Radon Association (ERA) has been formed aimed at serving the interests of the European radon community and to assist in reducing the health burden of Radon Exposure in Europe.
