A coordinated research program on human and environmental protection from electromagnetic emissions - funded by the Italian Ministry for the Instruction, University, and Research (MIUR) started in June 2000, under the leadership of Prof. Paolo Bernardi of the University of Rome "La Sapienza". It was devoted to the assessment of biological and environmental impact of wireless telecommunication systems and other systems that emit electromagnetic energy and the development of new knowledge and techniques for the control and mitigation of already existing electromagnetic field emitting sources. The research program was organized into five categories including: 1) characterization and modeling of electromagnetic fields and their sources; 2) measurement of electromagnetic field values in the environment; 3) interaction between electromagnetic field sources and exposed subjects; 4) electromagnetic field reduction and mitigation methods and technology and 5) coordination and dissemination of results. This article highlights some results of the research program.
