EURAMED rocc-n-roll Training Event for Researchers in Radiation Protection

On February 14 and 16, EURAMED rocc-n-roll will hold a radiation protection training event for researchers.

In line with the WP7 objectives to design and pilot a dedicated education and training (E&T) methodological framework for health professionals and researchers, this exemplary training event will be carried out dedicated to researchers of all varieties (clinical, academic) who use ionising radiation equipment as part of their work or undertaking research linked to medical applications of ionising radiation. This may include research at all levels (Research Assistants, Research Masters or Doctoral Students, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Research Fellows, etc) using radioactive materials, pre-clinical imaging, clinical trial organisers, etc.

This exemplary training event will be organised through two webinars (February 14, 14:00-17:00 CET and February 16, 14:00-17:00 CET)

Webinar 1 – 14/02/2023 | 14:00 – 17:00 CET

Dosimetry in radiation protection for researchers

  • To understand the importance of radiation dosimetry for researchers;
  • To become familiar with common methods for dosimetry and their respective advantages and limitations;
  • To consider the most appropriate dosimetric quantities for varying research scenarios;
  • To apply available dosimetric tools to practical scenarios.


14.00hrs CET: Welcome (Assoc Prof Jonathan McNulty, University College Dublin, Ireland)

14.20hrs: Dosimetry quantities (Prof Graciano Paulo, Presdient ESTESC, Coimbra, Portugal)

15.35hrs: Dosimetry for researchers (Assist Prof Rachel Toomey, UCD, Ireland)

16.00hrs: Benefit-risk communication strategies (Assoc Prof Shane Foley, UCD, Ireland)
