BIR, GE partner on radiation safety award

The British Institute of Radiology (BIR) and GE Healthcare are partnering together on a radiation safety travel award worth 1,000 pounds (1,135 euros).

The award aims to foster the sharing of best practices in radiation safety. Participants are asked to design a new tool or resource to improve radiation safety in healthcare, such as software or a device. The winner will receive funding to travel to a relevant scientific conference of his or her choice to present the innovation.

Applicants must be a BIR member and complete the application form, available for download at www.bir.org.uk/radiationsafetyaward, giving details of the resource or tool in fewer than 500 words, and return it to [email protected]. The closing date for applications is 31 March.

GE and BIR give the award every two years, and applicants are judged by a BIR. Results will be announced by 30 April and presented at a BIR event later in the year.
