    Abstract

    The CONCERT-EJP aimed to contribute to the sustainable integration of European and national research programmes in radiation protection. CONCERT as a co-fund action strived to achieve the attraction and pooling of national research efforts in Radiation Protection with EURATOM research programmes in order to make better use of public R&D resources in Europe and to tackle common European challenges in radiation protection more effectively by joint research efforts. In order to address this challenge the CONCERT-EJP operated as an umbrella structure for the research initiatives launched collaboratively by the European Radiation Protection Research Platforms MELODI, ALLIANCE, NERIS, and EURADOS. Along the course of the project the platforms EURAMED and SHARE have been created and integrated in the project. CONCERT as a co-fund action (70% EC and 30% national funding) was designed to support co-ordinated European funding of successfully evaluated projects from EURATOM administered by the European Commission and from national research funding from national governments of EU Member States and associated countries. It aimed to attract and pool a critical mass of national resources on objectives and challenges of Horizon 2020 and to achieve significant economies of scale by adding Horizon 2020 resources to joint efforts. The ambition was to use the most efficiently financial resources available for radiation protection research, adjusting national research programmes, and fostering synergistic efforts, leading to benefits to radiation protection research in Europe.
