MEDIRAD project kicks off today in Barcelona under EIBIR coordination

The Horizon 2020 MEDIRAD project on implications of medical low dose radiation exposure kicks off in Barcelona today with over 70 scientists from 33 organisations and 14 countries. The European Commission funded €10 m project will significantly improve the science base and practice of radiation protection in the medical field.

It is the first project coordinated by EIBIR in the field of radiation protection research.

EURAMED and the medical societies EANM, EFOMP, EFRS, ESR, and ESTRO have provided strategic guidance and input to the development of the project. Prof. Guy Frija, Chair of Eurosafe Imaging, acts as Clinical Coordinator and Prof. Elisabeth Cardis, radiation epidemiologist and Head of Radiation Programme at ISGlobal, as Scientific Coordinator of the project.

More information to come shortly.
