STRASS project is an INTERREG project, collaboration between Greece and North Macedonia that includes the following aims a) Discovery and identification of radioactive materials (especially orphan radioactive sources and materials that are transferred mainly accidentally) during check in cross border area, b) Location of dangerous points of the roadway Thessaloniki-Skopje. c) Investigation of radiological risk after a traffic accident d) Establishment of common emergency response protocols for both countries. The project deals with circular economy and sustainability and its main challenge that is presented here is to minimize any risk of accident (traffic accident during transportation, dispersion, loss etc) and pollution when handling and transferring willfully or accidentally hazardous radioactive materials.
