An independent, non-political & non-profit Knowing Society dedicated to the worldwide development of Radioecology, operating as a Think Tank

Radioecology is a highly multidisciplinary scientific discipline situated at the crossroads between environmental radioactivity, whether natural or man-made, and its consequences on both, man and the environment. It deals with radioactivity as a stressor requiring risk assessment, but also as a tracer of biogeochemical and ecological processes.

With nearly 1000 registered members from 58 countries currently, IUR represents an authoritative source of information on all aspects of radioecology.

Past, present and future of Radioecology: Questions to the President of the IUR
Journal of Environmental Radioactivity is affiliated to IUR.
