Luxembourg-Luxembourg: Co-ordinated Approach to the Development and Supply of Radioisotopes in the European Union
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Co-ordinated Approach to the Development and Supply of Radioisotopes in the European Union
The objective of this study is to fill the gaps in the available information on the supply chains for the main established and novel radioisotopes that have, or are expected to have, significant uses in Europe. The work should also prepare the ground for a long-term European co-operation in this area.
The study has to meet the following specific objectives:
(a) identify the main radioisotopes currently in use in the European Union, and the main radioisotopes expected to be in use by 2030;
(b) identify the existing and emerging methods and technologies for production of the radioisotopes covered under (a) and fully describe the main elements of their respective supply chains;
(c) identify the main suppliers of source materials and technologies for production of radioisotopes covered under (a) and the facilities which are part of the above supply chains;
(d) develop scenarios and concrete options for sustainable and secure supply of radioisotopes covered under (a) in the EU.
The work will consist of the four tasks, as described below.
Task 1: Establish a steering group;
Task 2: Define a “top 20” list of the main radioisotopes;
Task 3: Carry out a survey into the supply chains of radioisotopes;
Task 4: Define criteria for sustainable and secure supply of radioisotopes in the EU;
Task 5: Develop scenarios and concrete options for sustainable and secure supply of radioisotopes in the EU.
