Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Emerging EMF Technologies and Health Risk Management

Acronym: COST BM 0704
Main Objective: The main objective of the Action is to create a structure in which researchers in the field of
EMF and health can share knowledge and information on: 1. How existing EMF technologies
change either in their operating characteristics or in novel ways and applications in which
they are used 2. Identifying what entirely new EMF technologies are introduced and on what
time-scale 3. What novel emission and operating characteristics might result and what impact
these would have on the device-specific and overall EMF exposure of people 4. What
possible health effects could consequently arise and the scientific evidence for health
concerns if any 5. How such concerns should be addressed through the use of evidence-based
information and 6. What tools are effective in communicating and managing such risks and
perceived risks. And, effectively publish all such information in the public sector for the
benefit of all stakeholders.
