The ETRAP 2023 organizers would like to thank the following sponsors:
NRG develops, radiates and ensures worldwide distribution of nuclear medicines.
NRG, via its reactor in Petten, is one of the market leaders in producing nuclear isotopes (medical isotopes). Every day, more than 30,000 patients worldwide depend on our medical substances for their treatment. These medical isotopes are used for medical imaging techniques (PET and SPECT scans). Doctors then use them in the treatment of cancer and heart and vascular disease for example.
SHINE deploys its safe, cost-effective and environmentally friendly fusion technology in a stepwise approach. Its systems are used to inspect industrial components in aerospace, defense, energy and other sectors. SHINE’s proprietary medical isotope production processes create non-carrier-added lutetium-177 and are expected to create molybdenum-99.
In the future, SHINE plans to scale its fusion technology to help solve one of energy’s toughest hurdles by recycling nuclear waste. Through a purpose-driven and phased approach, SHINE aims to generate fusion power to deliver clean, abundant energy that could transform life on Earth.
Dutch Society for Radiation Protection (NVS)
The Dutch Society for Radiation Protection (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Stralingshygiëne, NVS) was established on February 4, 1960 to promote the scientific study of the protection of people, animals, plants and goods against radiation.
The NVS also aims to promote the application of acquired knowledge and insights about radiation hygiene in practice.
Uitgeverij Nucleus is a publisher focusing on the publication of The Radionuclide Handbook that is widely used by radiation protection professionals as well as in education and training programs in The Netherlands.

The Radionuclide Handbook will be available at ETRAP 2023, including an annex with the latest ICRP-151 data.
Society for Radiological Protection
The Society for Radiological Protection is the UK Associate Society affiliated to the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA). Formed in 1963, it is a major scientific society for all who are concerned professionally with the safety aspects of ionising and non-ionising radiation in industry, medicine, research, power generation, defence, education, and central and local government. SRP was incorporated by Royal Charter in 2007. Our Royal Charter states that the object of the Society is to “promote the science and art of radiation protection and allied fields for the public benefit“.
