The European Human Exposome Network is a network of projects studying the impact of environmental exposure on human health. It brings together Equal-Life with 8 other research projects, which received a grant from Horizon 2020, the EU’s framework programme for research and innovation. These projects address issues such as exposures to air quality, noise, chemicals, urbanisation and their health impacts. The projects’ results will contribute to advancing the European Green Deal’s ambition to protect citizens’ health and well-being from pollution and environmental deterioration by providing new evidence for better preventive policies. This network emerged from three decades of work towards better integration of environment and health in research.
