This brochure summarises fundamental research on the health effects of ionising radiation supported by the European Commission in its 4th and 5th Framework Programmes. This outline is set in the context of the need for a detailed understanding of the mechanisms of radiation action on cells and tissues of the body in order to support judgements on the health risks of low-dose and low dose-rate radiation. Also included is an indication of the main direction of research that will be pursued in the 6th Framework Programme.
