Report on European Radiation Protection Research Priorities

The OPERRA project (Open Project for the European Radiation Research Area) launched in June 2013 and its goal was to build up a legal and logistical coordination structure to administer future European Union (EU) calls for projects in radiation protection.

The main purpose of the OPERRA project addressed all radiation protection research fields (risks associated with low doses of ionizing radiation, radioecology, management of radiological and nuclear emergencies, dosimetry, medical uses of ionizing radiation, etc.), particularly by implementing EU calls for research projects.

The final analysis of the responses is available on the Multidisciplinary European Low Dose Initiative website.
