The Eleventh Symposium of the Croatian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA) with international participation was held in Osijek, Croatia, April 5 – 7, 2017. The Symposium was attended by ninety participants: seventy of them came from Croatian scientific research and government institutions, universities, health and economy sector, and twenty participants from abroad (representatives from Denmark, Hungary, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia). The following subjects were covered: general topics in the science of radiation and radiation protection, ethics and culture in radiation protection, radiation protection in medicine, biological effects of radiation, radiation dosimetry, instrumentation and measurement techniques, radioecology, exposure of the general population to radiation, radon and non-ionizing radiation. The main theme of the Symposium “Ethics and Culture in radiation protection” comprised four lectures, held by Ines Krajcar Bronić (Ethical principles in radiation protection), Jelena Popić Ramač (Culture of radiation protection in medicine), Maria Ranogajec Komor (Ethics of ionizing radiation protection in pediatric radiology of the upper respiratory tract) and Sanja Dolanski Babić (What do students at the Medical Faculty in Zagreb can learn about radiation protection in their physics education).
