Sixty-six multidisciplinary pan-European research projects dealing with environment and health issues were funded by the European Commission’s Research Directorate- General (now called DC Research and Innovation) in the Sixth Framework Programme of Research (2002- 2006).

The main results are presented in this catalogue. All of these projects have now ended and have produced a wealth of new and interesting results that have improved the science base and that have the potential to support various EU policies. The projects presented addressed a multitude of issues ranging from health impacts of climate change to improved integrated environment and health risk assessment methodologies. This overview should be useful to many stakeholders including the scientific community and policy makers at national, EU and global level.
