He also played a huge part in establishing the structure of the ECR under the leadership of Prof. Josef Lissner and later Prof. Albert Baert. His tireless hard work, famous efficiency and ingenuity were recognised by the ESR with the presentation of a special Distinguished Service Award at ECR 2004.   </p> <p>The ESR would like to pass on our most heartfelt condolences to all his friends and family. He will be sorely missed by us all.</p> <a href="/taxonomy/term/42" hreflang="en">Announcements</a> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://myesr.org/announcement/1099" data-a2a-title="George Schuyler (1927 - 2017)"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Sun, 02 Jul 2017 07:07:58 +0000 moderator 1099 at http://myesr.org MEDIRAD project kicks off in Barcelona under EIBIR coordination http://myesr.org/announcement/1096 <span>MEDIRAD project kicks off in Barcelona under EIBIR coordination</span> <span><span title="View user profile." href="/user/70" lang="" about="/user/70" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">moderator</span> </span> <span>Tue, 06/27/2017 - 16:11</span> <p>The Horizon 2020 MEDIRAD project on implications of medical low dose radiation exposure kicked off in Barcelona on June 27, with over 70 scientists from 33 organisations and 14 countries.
