The ESR and EFRS have joined efforts in various European Commission funded projects. Recently, the societies have jointly contributed as project coordinator or consortium member to the implementation of the below projects. New endeavours are continuously evaluated and pursued.
The EFRS is a shareholder organisation of the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR).
The European Alliance for Medical Radiation Protection Research (EURAMED) is a joint initiative of EIBIR. The EFRS is represented in the alliance by Graciano Paulo.
We are excited to announce the first ever joint publication between the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS)!
Published in both Insights into Imaging and Radiography, the ESR and EFRS aim to highlight the importance of patient safety in medical imaging and the fundamental roles that radiologists and radiographers play in ensuring the physical and psychological well-being of their patients.
