Abstract: Cyclotron particle accelerators are applied in many different fields, both in research and for routine production of radioisotopes, in particular for nuclear medicine. In this paper, an overview is given of the general situation regarding the cyclotron infrastructure in Europe, focusing on the distribution of different types of cyclotrons, and their activities in different research fields. Despite there being many common aspects regarding cyclotron operation, cyclotron-based research in Europe is highly fragmented, and a more integrated approach through networking is needed. This would facilitate more efficient cyclotron use through common problem solving and exploitation of synergies, as well as ensuring a better overall cyclotron infrastructure for European researchers.
