NextGEM Overview

NextGEM (Next Generation Integrated Sensing and Analytical System for Monitoring and Assessing Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Field Exposure and Health) is a 4 year project funded under the call “Exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) and health” (HORIZON-HLTH-2021-ENVHLTH-02-01).

The vision of NextGEM is to assure safety for EU citizens when employing existing and future EMF based telecommunication technologies. This will be accomplished by generating relevant knowledge that ascertains appropriate prevention and control/actuation actions of EMF exposure in residential, public, and occupational settings. Fulfilling the vision will provide a healthy living and working environment, under safe EMF exposure conditions, that can be trusted by people and be in line with the regulations and laws of the public authorities. For that, NextGEM will provide a framework for the generation of health-relevant scientific knowledge and data on new scenarios of exposure to EMF in multiple frequency bands, and develop and validate tools for evidence based risk assessment. NextGEM will also create the NextGEM Innovation and Knowledge Hub (NIKH) for EMF and Health offering a standardised way for European regulatory authorities and the scientific community to store and assess project outcomes, and provide access to FAIR data.. NextGEM is part of the European cluster on EMFs and health.

Objectives

1
Measure and model single and multiple RF sources, in changing EMF exposure patterns, based on innovative monitoring technologies
2

Assess health effects and elucidate action mechanisms of different and combined EMF exposure patterns by experimental and human studies

3

Identify causal links and perform risk assessment regarding EMF exposure and selected health outcomes while providing FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data

4

Develop NextGEM Innovation Knowledge Hub (NIKH) and validate it through real-life case studies

5

Maximise NextGEM’s impact through wide dissemination, communication, standardisation, exploitation, capacity building and clustering activities

Innovation & Knowledge Hub (NIKH)

NextGEM aims to provide a safe living environment in the face of rapid technological advancements that necessitate fast and reliable access to relevant scientific knowledge. NextGEM will create the European NextGEM Innovation and Knowledge Hub (NIKH) for EMF and Health: a go-to tool for European regulatory authorities, the scientific community, and citizens.
