Welcome to the website for RADAM

The COST Action RADAM was established by the COST Physics Committee as its ninth Action Programme (P9) in 2002. Funded for 4 years it has been ratified by 14 European countries and was formally launched in November 2003. Its main objective is to obtain a detailed understanding of the fundamental interaction processes initiated by the deposition of various types of radiation in biological material
