The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences Gold Medal awarded
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, recognized as the body that selects and awards the Nobel Prize, has decided to honor Ohtsura Niwa with the Gold Medal for Radiation Protection. This award is in recognition of his “significant contribution to stakeholder engagement within the system of radiological protection” notably for leading the ICRP Dialogue, which paved the way for the Fukushima Dialogue. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to him.
The NPO Fukushima Dialogue remains committed to advancing stakeholder involvement in Fukushima’s post-nuclear recovery through ongoing dialogue initiatives.
