CERN Accelerating science

The ERDIT Mission

The mission of the European Radiation Detection and Imaging Technology Platform is to promote the research on radiation detectors and imaging at European level. The aim of this platform is to synergistically implement a common research strategy across research infrastructures involving research laboratories, academy and industry which would benefit fundamental science, promote innovation in industry and would feed into the crucial European societal challenges.

The Background

The demand for advanced radiation detectors will increase dramatically in the next few years. A number of large research institutes including CERN, GSI, ESRF, XFEL, ITER, JET, ESS and others are either being built or are planning for substantial upgrades before 2020. In addition the concept of quantum imaging is used for materials testing in industry and has gained interest from the medical imaging industry with an expected annual market exceeding 10 billion euros.
