Radiation protection (EUR 50 million)

Main objectives:

Underpinning EU radiation protection policy to maintain and improve high levels of protection, in particular to resolve uncertainties in the field of low and protracted doses.

Research areas:

  • Quantification of risks associated with low and protracted exposure (epidemiological studies, cellular and molecular biology)

  • Medical exposures and natural sources of radiation (enhancing safety and efficacy of medical uses, better assessment and management of natural sources)

  • Protection of the environment and radioecology (conceptual and methodological basis)

  • Risk and emergency management (better approaches for risk and emergency management)

  • Protection of the workplace (improved monitoring and management of occupational exposures)
