Preannouncement: a transnational call for proposals on “Radiation Protection Research in Europe” soon to come

The new European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research (acronym: CONCERT) aims to contribute to the sustainable integration of European and national research programmes in the field of radiation protection. CONCERT expects to launch soon a first transnational Call for Proposals to support innovative research projects in radioprotection.

The aims of the call are:

  • To support transnational research projects that combine innovative approaches in the field of radiation protection in line with the research priorities of CONCERT;
  • To actively integrate E&T activities and collaboration with universities in multidisciplinary research projects;
  • To make optimal use of research infrastructures.

The expected topics for this first call for proposals are:

  • Topic 1: Improvement of health risk assessment associated with low dose/dose rate radiation;
  • Topic 2: Reducing uncertainties in human and ecosystem radiological risk assessment and management in nuclear emergencies and existing exposure situations, including NORM.

The ANR will be in charge of managing the call for proposals process. This call is likely to open on January 2016, with an anticipated submission deadline of April 2016.
