Created in 2010, the aim of the NERIS platform is to establish a forum for dialogue and methodological development among all organisations and associations taking part in decision-making of protective actions in nuclear and radiological emergencies and recovery in Europe. The objectives of the platform are to contribute to improving the effectiveness of current approaches for preparedness, promoting more coherent approaches, identifying gaps and need for further developments, addressing new and emerging challenges, and maintaining and improving know-how and technical expertise in this field. This paper describes the missions, the organisation and the activities of the platform as well as the key components of its strategic research agenda.
