£1,000 funding offered for award designed to promote worldwide innovation in radiation safety

 

The BIR/GE Radiation Safety Travel award is a new initiative which aims to share best practice in radiation safety. Participants are asked to design a new tool or resource to improve radiation safety in healthcare. This could be innovative software or a novel use of new technologies. It might be a device or object to warn, protect or assess protection provided.

 

The winner of the award, which is kindly supported by GE Healthcare, receives a £1,000 bursary  to travel to a relevant scientific conference of their choice to present the innovation

 

Applicants must complete the form at www.bir.org.uk/radiationsafetyaward, giving details of the resource or tool in less than 500 words, and return to [email protected]. Closing date for applications is 31 March 2017.

 

The award will be made every two years and applications will be judged by the BIR Awards and Prizes committee. GE Healthcare will not be part of the decision making process. Results will be announced by 30 April 2017 and the award will be presented at a BIR event later in the year.

 

Peter Hiles, Chair of the BIR Radiation Safety Special Interest Group, said ““We are immensely grateful to GE Healthcare for supporting this award, which not only spreads the word about success but also encourages professional development and good practice.”

 

Karl Blight, General Manager Northern Europe, GE Healthcare, said “GE Healthcare is delighted to support this initiative, which promotes worldwide best practice in radiation safety and allows talent and innovation to be shared in the wider arena.”
