About the call area
Public opinion surveys have shown that a majority of EU citizens are worried about the impact on their health of chemicals present in the environment and everyday products. The EU has put in place extensive legislation to protect the environment and health of citizens. However, we continue being exposed to manmade chemicals through water, food and air. These chemicals are suspected or proven to cause various health effects. Assessment their health risks is compromised by the fact that we are exposed to a large number of different mixtures of chemicals, not to single substances.
Each of the two topics proposed in the call will address one problem of major environmental health relevance: very persistent and mobile chemicals and chemical mixtures.
Proposals for innovative solutions to protect our health and the environment from persistent and mobile chemicals are sought as well as new ways to assess and manage risks of chemicals and pharmaceutical mixtures.
