Distance training of professional teams in radiation protection issues 0 (0)

Description of innovation

The Greek Atomic Energy Commission (ΕΕΑΕ) adapts to the conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic. It organizes online / distance training of professional teams in the field of radiation protection, offering professionals the opportunity to access training activities that combine theoretical and practical teaching regarding the safe use of radiation sources, or their harmless engagement with radiation practices. Radiation protection training mainly concerns radiation workers. These are workers in hospitals and health facilities (eg technologists, nursing staff, doctors, radiophysicists) and industrial areas e.g. radiographers. Plus, it may concern personnel of the special emergency response teams (eg Fire Brigade, Coast Guard, EKAB, etc.).

The first webinar was attended by 35 trainees, working in customs, airport and port facilities, as well as transport companies, which operate safety systems using radiation, i.e. the well-known X-ray machines and was supported by 2 EEAE's trainers.





The purpose is that during the period of pandemic a high level of safety culture is maintained in organizations and staff who apply practices using radiation.

Maintain and integrate innovation after the COVID-19 crisis

Electronic distance training is going to continue after the end of the pandemic.

Remote Electronic Inspections 0 (0)

Description of innovation 

Greek Atomic Energy Commission (EEAE) implements an inspection system to enforce the provisions of the radiation protection regulations adapted to the conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic. Inspections are part of the regulatory review to ensure compliance with the radiation protection requirements to which (a) all justified radiation practices (b) practices involving natural radioactive materials causing exposure of employees, which should not be overlooked, in terms of radiation protection and (c) the transport of radioactive materials. Therefore, organizations subject to inspections are between others, health units, public and private hospitals, health centers, clinics where radiation equipment operates (radiotherapy units, dental clinics, nuclear medicine laboratories, laboratories with MRI scans, etc.), and radioactive material transport companies. 

After taking into account the magnitude and nature of the risk associated with the practices, an overview of radiation protection issues concerning practices, and the degree of compliance with the provisions of the Radiation Protection Regulations, the inspection program was designed. Inspections are "scheduled" or "unplanned," which means that they can get carried out at any time. In both cases, inspections can be either "warned" or "unannounced."


Carrying out electronic inspections during the current pandemic period contributes to the safety of all and,

Ιnnovation Description 

The Municipality of Visaltia has developed an electronic application, through which it can receive electronic requests from citizens and businesses, process them and return them to the citizens' digital mailbox. Thus, during the Covid-19 pandemic, physical interaction is avoided, through which the virus is transmitted, both to citizens and to public servants, as physical presence is not required and requests are processed remotely.

The platform is in pilot implementation from May 8. Citizens can submit applications and receive certificates from the municipal register and male registry, cleaning and green services, financial and technical services, water supply, sewerage and irrigation services as well as general requests.


So far, the majority of requests (approximately 60%) concern the issue of certificates, while a large portion (approximately 30%) concerns requests to the Cleaning and Green services. The goal is in the coming months 50% of all requests to the municipality to be carried out electronically in order to facilitate both citizens and employees working from home.


The Municipality in the stages of innovation development collaborated with a private sector company.
