The EURAMED rocc-n-roll consortium is made up of a multidisciplinary team of twenty-nine partners from leading research institutions from seventeen European countries. Find out more about our partners by clicking on the countries on the map and the partner logos on the right.

European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR)

The European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR) was established in 2006 as a non‐profit organisation dedicated to coordinating biomedical imaging research in Europe. EIBIR is a multidisciplinary organisation providing support services to researchers in the field of biomedical imaging, such as proposal preparation, project coordination and management of international research projects and clinical studies. EIBIR has its head office in Vienna, at the headquarters of the European Society of Radiology (ESR), EIBIR’s main shareholder.

EIBIR is ideally placed to disseminate project results to relevant stakeholders in the field of biomedical imaging and has done so successfully in several FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects. EIBIR currently has a network of 70 member institutions from 22 countries across Europe. It includes clinical and basic science departments as well as biomedical imaging industry. EIBIR’s mission is to strengthen biomedical imaging research by supporting research networking activities, common initiatives, and interoperability in the field of biomedical imaging research.

Role in the project

EIBIR acts as Project Coordinator and WP1 lead. As such, EIBIR is tasked with the project coordination, governance, and management. Additionally, EIBIR coordinates the project’s dissemination and communication activities in close collaboration with all partners.

European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED)

The European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED) was established by five medical associations involved in the application of ionising radiation in medicine, namely the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), the European Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics (EFOMP), the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS), the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) with the goal of jointly improving medical care and its medical radiation protection issues through sustainable research efforts. Since October 1st, 2017 EURAMED is a non-profit organisation registered in Austria.

EURAMED complements existing established European platforms in several other fields of radiation protection and will thus create visibility for the medical field in this context.

EURAMED’s overall vision is to lead the European research activities in medical radiation protection and to assume an umbrella function for the harmonisation of practice to advance the European radiation protection safety culture in medicine. Specifically, EURAMED’s mission is

  • To jointly improve medical care through sustainable research efforts in medical radiation protection
  • To identify common research areas defined in a common strategic research agenda
  • To serve as a platform for medical radiation protection research, linking researchers and clinicians, adopting a harmonised approach to lobbying at European level to impact the European research funding landscape
  • To develop an aligned approach and response to European research calls

This is achieved by promoting research and teaching and by publication of scientific and professional information, especially a strategic research agenda in the field of medical radiation protection research, thereby increasing the science base in medical radiation protection. EURAMED pursues its purpose by co-operating with relevant national, European and international scientific organisations active in its field of interest and in particular, with national and international bodies promoting the interests related to medical radiation protection and medical radiation protection research as well as with patient organisations and the public at large.

Role in the project

EURAMED will participate in the following Work Packages and Tasks:

  • WP1 – Task 1.2: Management of consortium-internal and external bodies and internal communication
  • WP2 – Task 2.1: Identification and prioritisation of MELODI SRA topics relevant to medical radiation protection research Contribute to WP4 – Task 4.1: “Infrastructures for medical radiation protection research”
  • WP3 – Task 3.1: Radiation application in oncological diseases: needs
  • WP4 – Task 4.1: Infrastructures for research on medical applications of ionising radiation and corresponding radiation protection
  • WP5 – Task 5.2: Generating a framework for clinical and industrial transfer of innovation
  • WP6 – Task 6.1: The Strategic Research Agenda; Task 6.2: The Roadmap.
  • WP7 – Task 7.1: Defining future strategy of medical application of ionising radiation and RP education/training needs in medicine

In addition, EURAMED will handle the organisation of panel and workshop meetings and reimbursement of external experts at these meetings.
