On February 3rd, the EU Commission adopted and published its strategy to fight cancer, “Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan“. The plan is divided into four action areas: prevention, early detection of cancer, Diagnosis and treatment and Improve quality of life. The plan is structured around four key action areas with 10 flagship initiatives and multiple supporting actions.

The importance of prevention by reducing exposure to ionising radiation, particularly radon, which causes a substantial number of lung cancers is one of the actions (n°17) given in the annex to the Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan. RadoNorm project aims to contribute to resolving current challenges in radon risk.
