RaBBiT 2014 permits for the first time to achieve a very privileged forum of sharing and establishing scientific expertise within academics but also with our post-graduate students on current radiation biology and biophysics themes, where there are exciting and new advances in molecular and macromolecular manipulations.

RaBBiT consortium was established taking into account the adequacy to successful accomplish the proposed aims in its formal application but also a unique solid background on radiation biology, biochemical and biophysics techniques applied to atomic, molecular, macromolecular and cellular studies as well as to radiation induced processes. Curricular structure was designed to bring up a new generation of postgraduates in a highly interdisciplinary research area by setting up the appropriate research training standards. The curricular structure has 240 ECTS corresponding to a four-year postgraduate programme. 

The RaBBiT International Meeting 2014 benefits from the full participation of the External Supervisory Committee, which will certainly serve to supervise the programme achievements but also to advise and guide towards a better level of excellence. Also present will be members from:

- the proponent institution: Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT/UNL), Portugal;

- the participating institutions at international level: The Open University (OU), UK; Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Spain; University of Innsbruck (UI), Austria; Queen’s University Belfast (QUB), United Kingdom;

- the participating institutions at national level: Centro de Física e Investigação Tecnológica (CEFITEC/FCT/UNL), REQUIMTE (Rede de Química e Tecnologia) - Laboratório Associado para a Química Verde and Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e Tecnologia (CIUHCT).

The additional First RaBBiT Laboratory and Radiation Safety Workshop seeks to encourage all researchers and students to participate in, and contribute to the establishment and observance of safe working practices to prevent injury, ill-health, damage and loss, and to learn about the hazards and risks of chemistry laboratories and the places where radiation is used.
