The field of medicine, in particular medical imaging technology, is advancing rapidly.

The ESR aims to survey up-to-date information about the needs of the radiological research community to develop recommendations to enhance radiologists' involvement in the emerging fields of research and innovation.

In order to maintain and enhance research in radiology, the ESR makes continuous efforts to improve and advance education in radiology.

Leveraging cooperation between research disciplines and fostering networking with scientific biomedical societies in Europe and abroad are among the priority objectives of the ESR.

The ESR Research Committee provides advice on all research matters within the Society and collaborates with the Education, the Quality, Safety and Standards and the Subspecialties and Allied Sciences Committees on structuring research in radiology

The ESR Research Committee also provides the liaison of the Society with the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR), which is dedicated to the coordination of research projects and supports the development of biomedical imaging technologies and the dissemination of knowledge.

Start your future now with the ESR Research Seed Grant

Together with the European institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR), the ESR has launched a new seed funding programme for innovative one-year projects and pilot studies on AI or cardiac imaging.

The purpose of the programme is to stimulate and provide finding for ambitious projects that will subsequently lead to larger studies and further funding applications. Seed grants may amount to €4,000-8,000 for a period of 12 months. Up to 10 projects will be funded in 2020.

Information on the recipients of the seed grants for 2020 will be announced shortly on the EIBIR website.
