MELODI is an European Platform dedicated to low dose radiation risk research. In 2010 MELODI was founded as a registered association with 15 members.
European Low Dose Initiative
The purpose of MELODI is:
- MELODI will propose R&T priorities for Europe in its field of competence
- EUROPE 2020 Strategy.
- MELODI will seek the views of stakeholders on the priorities for research, keep them informed on progress made, and contribute to the dissemination of knowledge.
- MELODI will interface with international partners like WHO and IAEA.
Based on the outcomes of the yearly MELODI workshops a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) is being progressively developed. To assure an open and vivid discussion and development of the SRA the contribution from a large number of scientists and stakeholders is needed. More information about the SRA and the ongoing discussion can be found under SRA.
In parallel to the SRA a statement on a short- to medium-term research agenda for R&T projects is developed to improve the scientific basis for radiation protection in Europe giving guidance for pending EURATOM R&T project calls. These recommendations can be found under MELODI documents. Comments on the statements are welcome, too.
