European Matters Committee
The EUM Committee is responsible to the Council of the Federation for the representation of the interest of the Federation to the various bodies of the European Union. This includes:
- To follow developments within the European Union in relation to medical physics and report to the Officers on any important matters.
- To identify key Members of the European Parliament, Commission and other European Union employees and inform them about the policies of EFOMP on matters handled form time to time by them.
- To formulate proposals addressed to appropriate bodies of the European Union on matters related to medical physics.
- To disseminate relevant information to the NMOs to be used to inform their national delegates to the appropriate bodies of the European Union.
EU Projects Relevant to the field of Medical Physics
The EU Matters Committee has a remit to keep a watching brief on EU Projects that are relevant to the field of Medical Physics when new calls are made, project status is updated, EU sponsored events are announced and regulations are being formulated or announced.
Some information on how the EU operates is available here; note that this was presented in 2010. To assist the EU Matters Committee, it would help us if you could identify an MEP from your country whom we could contact to inform them about the Medical Physicist profession in general and the EFOMP view of the MPE in particular. Please would you send the name of your identified MEP to the Chairman?
