Many challenges in radiotherapy with ions and in space radioprotection are related to the investigation of the same nuclear processes and require similar experimental setups to be tackled. The Theoretical Institute for Fundamental Physics Applications (TIFPA) in Trento, Italy, focuses its research on these two fields and can take advantage of the Trento protontherapy center, where it coordinates and runs the activities at the experimental room in operation since 2016. An overview of the scientific program conducted by TIFPA and the applied detection methodologies are presented here.
