EARL – Research4Life

In 2006, the leadership of the EANM launched EANM Forschungs GmbH (EARL) as an initiative to promote multicentre nuclear medicine and research.

EARL was created to unleash the power of molecular imaging and further:

  • To act as a contact point for researchers as well as for clinicians and business leaders
  • To improve nuclear medicine and its practice
  • To give a platform for the efficient pursuit of scientific initiatives
  • To boost molecular imaging so that it becomes a standard diagnostic modality in future clinical medicine and research
  • To provide basis for discussion and the exchange of cutting edge ideas
  • EARL can accredit your PET/CT scanner
  • To enhance the comparability of data acquired by molecular imaging
  • To position nuclear medicine within the EU research agenda

To tackle the challenge of the Healthcare workforce crisis in Europe, the EANM has developed a comprehensive approach through the ‘Initiatives in Nuclear Medicine to Support Professional Interest and Recruitment in Europe (INSPIRE)’.

INSPIRE by EANM aims to create an integrated framework of activities targeted at students, schools, universities, and other stakeholders to attract talent to nuclear medicine across Europe, thus securing the future of patient care.
