The European Congress of Radiology was held in Vienna between March 1-5, 2023. The EURAMED rocc-n-roll project was presented in a dedicated session on “European Research Agenda for medical applications of ionising radiation: the EURAMED rocc-n-roll project”
The session was chaired by our Clinical Coordinator Guy Frija (UP). Katrine Riklund (UmU) kicked off the session presenting medical radiation application research needs and radiation protection in different disease areas. Jean-Michel Dolo (CEA) presented the EURAMED rocc-n-roll view on the criteria, definition and establishment of centres
of excellence and research infrastructures for the field of medical applications of ionising radiation research. EURAMED rocc-n-roll Scientific Coordinator Christoph Hoeschen (OvGU) introduced the project’s findings on challenges and barriers as well as recommendations for improved transfer of knowledge to industry and clinical routine. He also provided an overview of the topics to be covered in the EURAMED rocc-n-roll Strategic Research Agenda and Roadmap which will be finalised in July 2023. Finally, Georgi Simeonov (DG ENER, European Commission) presented the EC perspective on the efforts in our project to develop a European Strategic Research Agenda for medical applications of ionising radiation and the link to SAMIRA and the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.

In addition, results from WP7 were presented in the open access session “Advancements and challenges in radiography education” by Joana Santos (IPC) on March 1, 2023. The outcomes of EURAMED rocc-n-roll Task 2.6 discussions on regulatory views and issues were presented by Hugo de las Heras Gala (BfS) at the EuroSafe Imaging session on “Radiation protection and artificial intelligence (AI): expectations and needs from the community” on Sunday, March 5. Moreover, a dedicated EURAMED rocc-n-roll poster “EURAMED rocc-n-roll: From a European strategic research agenda towards a corresponding roadmap for medical applications of ionizing radiation” was available in the digital poster area.
EIBIR (European Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Research) was present during the whole week of the congress and invited participants to learn more about EURAMED rocc-n-roll at their booth and pick up the new project flyer.
