ATHLETE aims to develop a prospective exposome cohort and an advanced, next-generation, toolbox on the human exposome. The toolbox can be used to systematically quantify the effects of a wide range of community-level and individual-level environmental risk factors on mental, cardiometabolic, and respiratory health outcomes and associated biological pathways, during the first two decades of life. We will implement co-designed community-level interventions co to reduce personal exposures and translate the resulting evidence into policy recommendations and prevention strategies.
To achieve its objectives, the ATHLETE project is structured into three key areas that
contain nine Work Packages (WP):
