Abstract: A summary of the activities of the RN Thematic Group of ERNCIP in 2016 is reported. The Group organized its work in three sub-topics: awareness raising on a new standard on list-mode data acquisition, robotics in RN field and reachback (expert support to field teams). The work of the Group is based on the Work Programme 2016 developed at the end of March 2016. In March 2016, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) accepted the proposal to develop a new international standard (IEC 63047) for list-mode data acquisition. The pre-normative research for this standard was provided by the ERNCIP RN Thematic Group. A field trial was organized for the robotics. It produced valuable feedback to understand the technological and information gaps between robotics community and radiological experts. These gaps need to be acknowledged towards efficient field cooperation and standardized operations. The work on reachback focused on cooperation with the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism to organize a joint workshop on roles and responsibilities of the technical reachback. The agenda was designed and the time of the event was fixed to 28-30 March 2017. The activities of the Group in 2016 are documented in four ERNCIP outputs produced in 2016, including this report summarising the Group’s work in 2016. In addition, two flyers, fact sheets were produced to promote awareness raising of the list-mode data acquisition standard and the ERNCIP initiative on joint formats and protocols for the communication between the frontline officers and the technical reachback.
