More about MELODI


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. Comments are welcome.
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.
