    The European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research (acronym: CONCERT) has launched the second transnational Call for Proposals to support innovative research projects in radioprotection.

    Opportunities for Radiation Protection research projects under CONCERT programme

    Open Call launched with deadline on 2 May 2017 with a total budget of €6.98 million.

    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.

    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.
