EURopeAn MEDical application and Radiation prOteCtion Concept: strategic research agenda aNd ROadmap interLinking to heaLth and digitisation aspects

EURAMED rocc-n-roll

EURAMED rocc-n-roll aims to produce a Strategic Research Agenda - and its roadmap - for medical applications of ionizing radiation and associated radiation protection, as well as a document identifying synergies between radiation protection, health research and digitization, and providing relevant guidance to the European Commission and stakeholders on future research, including the potential need for centers of excellence in this field.

The 3-year EURAMED rocc-n-roll project aims to propose an integrated and coordinated European approach to research and innovation in medical applications of ionising radiation and related radiation protection based on stakeholder consensus and existing activities in the field (incl. existing SRAs of radiation protection platforms, EC health and digitisation programmes, EURATOM-funded projects, SAMIRA initiative). To achieve this, research and radiation protection needs in the clinical disciplines using ionising radiation will be analysed 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 research and innovation in the field.

Representation of relevant radiation protection disciplines like radiation biology, dosimetry for medical applications, ethics as well as clinical expertise in the fields of radiology, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, oncology, cardiovascular diseases, neurology, paediatrics complemented by regulatory and health policy, AI and industry experts in the consortium will ensure a fully integrative approach and allow a broader framework of quality and safety in healthcare. Based on wide stakeholder input and consultation on above aspects, EURAMED rock-n-roll will produce an SRA for medical applications of ionising radiation and related radiation protection and a corresponding roadmap, as well as an interlink document, integrating the views and identifying synergies from the areas of radiation protection, health research and digitisation, with impactful guidance to the EC and stakeholders on future research including the potential needs for centres of excellence in this area. This will be accompanied by education and training schemes for health workforce and scientists to increase Europe's research capacity in the field.

Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) consist mainly of supporting measures such as standardization, dissemination, awareness and communication, networking, coordination and support services, policy dialogues, mutual learning exercises and studies.

They can include design studies for new infrastructure and complementary strategic planning activities, networking and coordination between programs in different countries.

Like normal collaborative projects, Coordination and Support Actions (CSAs) are multi-partner projects. Unlike collaborative projects, CSAs do not fund research and development, but they fund activities that coordinate or support research actions and strategies, such as networking and exchange actions, cross-border access to research infrastructures, studies, conferences, preparation of studies, etc.
