The EU4Health 2021 Work Programme hopes to provide a robust response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with grants for projects that will improve general wellness; tackle cross-border health threats; improve medicinal products, medical devices and crisis-relevant products; and strengthen health systems, their resilience and resource efficiency.

As part of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, improving the use of radiation technology in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer is the target of grant 2.3 EU4H-2021-PJ-03, which will distribute up to €3.5 million in funding. The projects are expected to enhance the quality and safety of medical radiation applications, workforce education and training, and equal access to modern medical radiation technology and interventions.

The project will also cooperate with the Strategic Agenda for Medical Ionising Radiation Applications (SAMIRA).

The deadline for proposal submission is September 15, and as many as 5 proposals will be selected. The expected duration of each project is 24 months.
