FAST Nuclear Emergency Tools (FASTNET) (FASTNET)

Start date: Oct 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2019,

When dealing with emergency, two issues with fully different time requirements and operational objectives, and thus different methods and tools, have to be considered: emergency preparedness and emergency response. This project will address both issues by combining the efforts of organizations active in these two areas to make already identified deterministic reference tools and methods a decisive ...

Aviation is one of the most critical infrastructures of the 21st century. Even comparably short interruptions can cause economic damage summing up to the Billion-Euro range. As evident from the past, aviation shows certain vulnerability with regard to natural hazards. The proposal EUNADICS-AV addresses airborne hazards (environmental emergency scenarios), including volcano eruptions, nuclear accid ...

Background: Breast cancer detection should be carried out by a team involving a number of health professionals from various medical, nursing and allied health disciplines. Students from different health disciplines often have little idea of what each other’s roles entail. Interprofessional learning increase this knowledge, as well as giving students an understanding of the interpersonal skills nee ...

Generic Integrated Forensic Toolbox for CBRN incidents (GIFT CBRN)

Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2017,

"Forensic investigation is a key component in the fight against crime and the protection of EU societies. At present it is hampered by a lack of protocols and training in carrying out forensic analysis on CBRN-contaminated materials. The aim of GIFT-CBRN is to develop a forensic toolbox for investigating CBRN incidents. This toolbox would provide (1) procedures, sampling methods and detection of C ...

Open Project for the European Radiation Research Area (OPERRA)

Start date: Jun 1, 2013, End date: May 31, 2017,

"Within the OPERRA project, it is proposed that the MELODI Association, as a well-advanced network, takes the lead in establishing the necessary structures able to manage the long-term European research programmes in radiation protection, also taking advantage of the valuable experience gathered through the DoReMi network of excellence. Whilst in fields adjacent to low-dose risk research (radioeco ...

Diagnostic radiation represents an indispensable, sometimes life-saving, tool in modern medicine. However, the growing use of computerized tomography (CT) is a topic of concern in radiological protection, especially for children and adolescents. Children are generally more sensitive to the carcinogenic effects of ionizing radiation than adults. In addition, they have a longer life-span to express ...

Cooperation on Chernobyl health research – CO-CHER (CO-CHER)

Start date: Feb 1, 2014, End date: Jul 31, 2016,

The IARC previously led an EU funded project “Agenda for Research on Chernobyl Health (ARCH)”, the objective of which was to recommend a strategic health research agenda following the Chernobyl accident. The ARCH demonstrated that Chernobyl provides a unique opportunity to answer questions about radiation risks. The multidisciplinary group of experts strongly supported the need for well-designed a ...

Realizing the European Network in Biodosimetry (RENEB)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

Creating a sustainable network in biological dosimetry that involves a large number of experienced laboratories throughout the EU will significantly improve the accident and emergency response capabilities in case of a large-scale radiological emergency. A well organised cooperated action involving EU laboratories will offer the only chance for a fast and trustworthy dose assessment urgently neede ...

Low Dose Research towards Multidisciplinary Integration (DOREMI)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

The aim of DoReMi is to promote the sustainable integration of low dose risk research in Europe in order to aid the effective resolution of the key policy questions identified by the High Level Expert Group (HLEG) on Low Dose Risk Research (www.hleg.de). DoReMi provides an operational tool for the development of the proposed MELODI platform (Multidisciplinary European Low Dose Risk Re-search Initi ...

Strategy for Allied Radioecology (STAR)

Start date: Feb 1, 2011, End date: Jul 31, 2015,

With a renewed interest in nuclear energy and the scientific challenges related to the nuclear fuel cycle, the need for radioecological expertise is increasing world-wide. Concurrently, education related to radioecology has steadily declined, leading experts are approaching retirement, and funding for radioecological research is at a minimum in many European countries. To face this challenge and a ...

Recent epidemiological studies suggest that cancer risk after exposures with doses comparable to the dose limits for occupationally exposed workers may be larger than assumed by ICRP in the derivation of these limits. The value of cancer risk from such exposures and its dependence on tissue, radiation type and individual factors is largely unknown. The innovative approach proposed here combines ep ...

"In the event of a large scale radiological emergency biological dosimetry is an essential tool that can provide timely assessment of radiation exposure to the general population and enable the identification of those exposed people, who should receive medical treatment. A number of biodosimetric tools are potentially available, but they must be adapted and tested for a large-scale emergency scena ...

"Recent epidemiologic evidence suggests that moderate and low radiation doses to the heart may result in a moderate, but significant increase in cardiovascular mortality. So far, the pathogenesis of radiation induced heart disease has not been studied in detail. Pathohistologic studies suggest that microvascular damage plays a crucial role in the development of radiation induced cardiovascular dis ...

The growing use of diagnostic X-rays and of high-dose techniques (CT, interventions) in children and adolescents is a topic of concern in radiological protection. Studies of other populations indicate that children are generally more sensitive to health effects of radiation than adults. In addition, children have a longer life-span to express any radiation-related health effect and, because of the ...
