Launch of a transnational call for proposals on “Radiation Protection Research in Europe” through the EJP CONCERT

The 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. The 1st of March 2017, CONCERT was launching its second 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;
  • Actively integrate E&T activities and collaboration with universities in multidisciplinary research projects;
  • Make optimal use of research infrastructures.

Project proposals will address multidisciplinary and transnational research. This call will address 2 main topics (each one has three sub-topics):

Topic 1 - Understanding human health effects from ionising radiation and improving dosimetry

I.    Improvement of health risk assessment associated with low dose/dose rate radiation.
II.    Improvement of occupational dosimetry.
III.    Patient-tailored diagnosis and treatment: full exploitation and improvement of technology and techniques with clinical and dose structured reporting.

Topic 2    - Radioecology, emergency and social sciences and humanities

I.    Biomarkers of exposure and effects in living organisms, as operational outcomes of a mechanistic understanding of intra- and inter-species variation of radiosensitivity under chronic low dose exposure situations.
II.    Countermeasure strategies preparedness for emergency and recovery situations.
III.    Models, tools and rationales for stakeholder engagement and informed decision-making in radiation protection research, policy and practice for situations involving exposures to ionising radiations.

The project proposals must fall within one of the following topics. They may answer one or more sub-topics within one of the topics when appropriate.

ANR will be in charge of managing the call for proposals process.

Electronic proposal submission deadline: May 02, 2017 17:00:00 CEST (Brussels local time).
