The participants used the questions sessions and the breaks for plenty of discussions. There were also an active network at dinner in the evenings. 

The 13th Symposium is planned for autumn 2024. Then there will be another exchange on release of radioactive materials at national level in German. More information will be found on the internet at the beginning of next year:
