The Projects Committee is responsible to the Council of the Federation for participating in the implementation of projects and supporting the participation of Medical Physics institutions for improving research in Medical Physics and the professional status of Medical Physicists in Europe and Internationally.
EFOMP participates in projects that require knowledge from medical physicists and to show the importance of the medical physicist work in health care. EFOMP participates, for example, in steering committees or advisory boards for major European projects. This work is often, but not always, done by EFOMP officers or former officers. In projects that require extensive work, EFOMP needs support from individual medical physicists.
The committee identifies project calls, in particular tender requests from the EU and links with NMOs and relevant professional societies to put together a bid.
EFOMP’s involvement in projects is overseen by the Projects Committee.
Although EFOMP’s aims and mission statement do not explicitly call for EFOMP to be involved in projects, one way of satisfying a number of these aims and help in EFOMP’s mission is to be involved in projects that lead to the publication of reports and scientific journal articles that support these objectives. Publications will be particularly relevant when they contain a strong European dimension. Previous publications, having such a perspective, in which EFOMP has been involved, include reports that are sponsored and published by the European Commission.
EURAMED: European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research
The European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED) represents a consortium of associations involved in the application of ionising radiation in medicine, namely the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM), the European Federation of Organizations for Medical Physics (EFOMP), the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS), the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) with the goal of jointly improving medical care and its medical radiation protection issues through sustainable research efforts. Since October 1st, 2017 EURAMED is a non-profit organisation registered in Austria.
The primary motivation of the ENEN+ project is to substantially increase the interest of students and young professionals in a career in nuclear sector. To achieve this objective, the ENEN+ project will financially support through mobility grants students and professionals willing to carry out any education or training activity in the nuclear fields, which may benefit their nuclear knowledge and skills.
Grants have previously been approved to medical physicists to attend the European School for Medical Physics ESMPE, the European Congress of Medical Physics ECMP2018 and courses organised by the EUTEMPE net, however other types of activities are possible. Deadline for applications are set to several occasions during 2018 and 2019.
