The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) is intensifying its research on radiation protection in power grid expansion in view of the energy transition in Germany and the still existing scientific uncertainties regarding the possible risks of static and low-frequency fields. There are 33 studies planned in the fields of epidemiology and biology, exposure and dosimetry and risk communication. At the kick-off event on 11 July 2017 in Berlin, the BfS will provide information on its research initiative and the discussion shall improve the orientation of the research program and focus on key issues.
