European Training Network on Electromagnetic Risks in Medical Technology

Project description

Towards a risk-based approach to medical technology

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) represents an increasing threat to the safe performance of medical devices used in hospitals, at home or on the move. Europe, with a leading role in medical technology, has recently enforced a fundamental shift in their design philosophy. A new risk-based approach now makes it necessary to think in terms of scenarios and to ensure a device works safely over its lifetime. The EU-funded ETERNITY project will provide 14 early-stage researchers with international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral training in electromagnetic risks and medical technology, combining research, doctoral schools, network-wide events and secondments. The project brings together a consortium of four academic and three industrial beneficiaries as well as five partner organisations from across Europe.
