HERA

Integrating Environment and Health Research: a Vision for the EU

HERA Project
Duration
01/01/2019 - 31/12/2021
Coordinator
INSERM
Funded by
European Comission

The HERA project involves 15 European countries, an international organization and a European NGO, thus 24 partners in total who are working hard to prepare the Health and Environment Research Agenda 2020-2030.

On completion of the HERA project, we will have:

  • established a solid, cohesive and extensive stakeholders community in Europe,
  • identified the research and policy needs, gaps and priorities on environment and health that will be feasible, economically viable and relevant for the European population,
  • developed guidelines for evaluating environmental influences on health and their socio-economic impact for further use,
  • created the European Health and Environment Research Agenda 2020-2030 that will encourage the development of targeted transdisciplinary research on the basis of research gaps for major environmental exposures of humans and ecosystems and major drivers of changes in environmental exposures and policy needs integrating environment, ecosystem quality and health research.
