The Geant4-DNA project was initiated by Dr Petteri Nieminen at ESA/ESTEC, The Netherlands.

The Geant4-DNA collaboration is managed by a Steering Committee (SC) and Activity representatives are members of the Geant4-DNA Steering Committee. The Geant4-DNA project is coordinated by IN2P3/CNRS. It is a full activity of the Low Energy Electromagnetic Physics working group of the Geant4 collaboration. Our collaboration rules have been adopted in 2014 and they are updated every other year.
