The 3-year EURAMED rocc-n-roll project will produce a strategic research agenda in the field of medical radiation protection based on wide stakeholder input and consultation, a corresponding roadmap, and an interlink document, integrating the views and identifying synergies from the areas of radiation protection, health research and digitization with impactful guidance to the EC and stakeholders on future research.
A fully integrated and coordinated European approach based on stakeholder consensus and existing activities in the field will be ensured. The EURAMED rocc-n-roll consortium brings together relevant disciplines including radiation biology, dosimetry for medical applications, ethics, and clinical expertise, complemented by regulatory and health policy, AI, and industry experts.
EURAMED rocc-n-roll will analyse research and radiation protection needs in the clinical disciplines using ionising radiation with the aim to generate the largest benefit for the European population in an equal, safe, high-quality way throughout Europe by fostering clinical translation while also strengthening economic growth and industrial competitiveness supported by medical radiation protection research and innovation. Moreover, education and training schemes for health workforce and scientists will be developed to increase Europe’s research capacity in the field.
