The FRED database was originally created as part of the EC
fifth framework project FASSET (Framework for the Assessment of Environmental
Impact, Contract No.: FIGE-CT-2000-00102) and its main use was to gather
literature data to help summarise dose-effect relationships between radiation
exposures and their effects on organisms.
The database has been extended, improved and made more user-friendly as part of the EC's sixth framework project ERICA (Environmental Risk from Ionising Contaminants: Assessment and Management, Contract No.: FI6R-CT-2004-508847). The database is now called FREDERICA and is available for use on it's own or in conjunction with the ERICA assessment tool for undertaking risk assessments for the impact of ionising radiation on non-human species.
Please note that the site should be accessed using Internet Explorer only (changes to allow other browers to be used will be made in the future.
The ERICA project website can be accessed from here.
