The European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED) represents a consortium of associations involved in the application of ionising radiation in medicine, namely the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), the European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics (EFOMP), the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS), the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) with the goal of jointly improving medical care and its radiation protection issues through sustainable research efforts.
To lead the European research activities in medical RP and to assume an umbrella function for the harmonisation of practice to advance the European RP safety culture in medicine
– To jointly improve medical care through sustainable research efforts in medical radiation protection.
– Identification of common research areas defined in a common strategic research agenda.
– To serve as a platform for medical radiation protection research, linking researchers and clinicians, adopting a harmonised approach to lobbying at European level to impact the European research funding landscape.
– To develop an aligned approach and response to European research calls.
