Report of high level and expert group on European low dose risk research

Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This report of the High Level and Expert Group (HLEG) on European Low Dose Risk Research summarizes key policy issues for ionising radiation risk management and describes both the state of science and the main challenges in low dose risk research. Based on this, a European research strategy is proposed with the key element of creating a European Platform, to be named MELODI: Multidisciplinary European LOw Dose Initiative. In addition key concepts are identified that should be incorporated into the scientific strategy for such a multi-disciplinary low dose initiative. Five Member States (Finland, France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom), the Commission as well as eight representatives of the research community with recognised high level expertise in low dose risk research contributed to this report.
