RMIT hosts a node of the Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research (ACEBR), a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Centre of Excellence, 2013-17.
With over 6 billion mobile phone subscriptions world-wide, the electromagnetic energy (EME) that powers this technology is ubiquitous, as is community concern about the possibility of associated health effects. Responding to this concern, ACEBR was founded in 2013 to promote Australia's EME health, both in the immediate future, and through the development of human research capacity in this field into the future. Since April 2018 ACEBR has been working to a five-year research agenda addressing the most important aspects of the non-ionising EME health debate.
