The ‘CONCERT-European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research’ under Horizon 2020 is operating as an umbrella structure for the research initiatives jointly launched by the radiation protection research platforms MELODI, ALLIANCE, NERIS and EURADOS. Based on the platform SRAs and joint programming, CONCERT will develop research priorities, trying to seek further input from society and stakeholders. It will reach out to engage the wider scientific community in its projects, aiming to answer the needs in radiation protection for the public, occupationally exposed people, patients in medicine, and the environment.
Within CONCERT two major open RTD calls have been launched; the first one in 2016 and the other one in 2017.
Four projects of interest for NERIS have been selected under the 1st and 2nd CONCER Calls: CONFIDENCE, TERRITORIES, ENGAGE and SHAMISEN - SINGS.
