After the first three calls for proposals, over 70 multidisciplinary pan-European research projects dealing with environment and health issues have been funded by the European Commission’s Research and Innovation Directorate-General in the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities (2007-2013).
All the projects are still ongoing. Volume 1 comprises the first three calls; a second volume is expected at the end of the Seventh Framework Programme. The projects presented address a multitude of scientific issues ranging from health impacts of climate change to environmental and health impacts of nanoparticles or chemicals. This overview should be useful to many stakeholders including the scientific community and regulatory authorities
