BIOMEDICAL EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS

Obiettivo

The general objectives of the COST 244 Action are :
to create European co-ordination for research in the subject area ;
to co-ordinate and promote national research activities at the European level ;
to stimulate multidisciplinary collaboration between experts in different fields : medicine, biology, electrical engineering, etc.

On the basis of general objectives some specific objectives can be identified :
to establish a system and a European network for continuously co-ordinated research on the biomedical effects of EM fields and their implications for the corresponding standards ;
to ensure a scientific basis for new European standards in the field of protecting the general public and occupationally-exposed personnel against EM exposure ;
to ensure a scientific basis for new common European standards in the field of the technical characterisation of EM sources.

Current status
The last MC Meeting was held in Zagreb (CRO), 5/6 Oct 1996.
A new action was proposed, and approved by the CSO, as COST 244bis : Biomedical effects of electromagnetic fields.
During the COST 244 Action's life, communications and co-operation was established with following international entities :
organisations: WHO, URSI, EBEA, BEMS, GSM-MoU, FGF, WTR
standardisation bodies: CENELEC, ETSI, IEC
other COST actions: COST 243, COST 231

Three horizontally integrated WGs were established :
WG 1 - Epidemiology and Human Health Effects
WG 2 - Basic Research
WSGs : Biophysical Aspects - Cellular studies - Animal studies
WG 3 - Systems and Application Engineering
WSGs : Numerical methods - Physical phantoms together with a Mobile Communications Co-ordination Committee as a vertical integration of these three WGs in the field of mobile telecommunication.
Since in the Action 205 national projects from more than 140 Institutions are involved with more than 600 scientists participating, yearly meetings of the WGs and WSGs were initiated with three main purposes : planning and co-ordination ; co-operation with other organisations in the field ; and internal evaluation.
Communication amongst the participants was primarily organised by E-mail. An Action database was installed on GOPHER and then transferred to WWW.

Work planned
COST 244bis : Biomedical Effects of Electromagnetic Fields as a new Action for the next 4 years period was prepared by Chairman & WGs Chairmen on the basis of a national delegation contribution and was unanimously accepted by the MC members. Preparation took more than 2 years. The draft of the new MoU was accepted by CSO and opened for signing.
Action programme was externally evaluated by eminent experts : J. Lin (USA), M. Stuchly (Canada), M. Repacholi (WHO) and M. Swicord (US).
