EU4Health funds enhanced radiation technology for cancer care

EU4Health hopes to provide a robust response to the COVID-19 epidemic in its 2021 Work Programme. With the grant 2.3 EU4H-2021-PJ-03, up to €3.5 million in funding will be provided to investigate the quality and safety of radiation technology in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The projects are expected to enhance the quality and safety of medical radiation applications, workforce education and training, and equal access to modern medical radiation technology and interventions.

The grant is part of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan and will also cooperate with the Strategic Agenda for Medical Ionising Radiation Applications (SAMIRA).

The deadline for proposal submission is September 15, and as many as 5 proposals will be selected. The expected duration of each project is 24 months.
