SRP Annual Conference 2023


2023 - A Radiation Protection Odyssey. A Leap into the Future - Celebrating 60 Years of SRP


What an amazing Annual Conference it was in Aberdeen at the P&J Live Conference Centre.  With presentations from across the RP profession to Scottish dancing, this was certainly the place to be.  Presentations are now available for delegates only to view and certificates of attendance will be sent out this week.  Videos from sessions can be viewed through the conference app and will be uploaded to our website very shortly and you can view the photos on our Annual Conference gallery.

We'd like to say a big thank you Dr Colin Martin for presenting The Dunster Lecture this year and to John Jackson (SRP Archivist) for presenting on '60 years of SRP' (video below) and for being on the SRP History stand in the exhibition hall. (LtoR: Colin presenting and Jennifer Humphries (President) with John).  View The Dunster Lecture for 2023.

The 5K took place around the outside of the venue, amongst the greenery.  Congratulations to Gary Teague (Gemini Technology) for being the fastest male in SRP's 5K fun run and Ann Morgan (Dstl) for being the fastest female.  SRP Council and Harris Associates won the fastest team (Mary Allan, Charlene Matthewman, Gary Teague and Jim Thurston). (Photos LtoR: Gary, Ann and Mary, Charlene and Jim).  The video can be found below.

The 2023 winner is Dr Corynne McGuire (SEPA) for her paper, presented in Aberdeen, entitled ‘Radiological Protection of the Public from Radioactive Particles’.  The photo shows SRP President, Jennifer Humphries (right), presenting Corynne (left) with the award on a recent windy day in the Lake District where Corynne was on a walking holiday to celebrate her PhD graduation from the University of Stirling.  Double congratulations Corynne!
