Join us for the 2023 European Human Exposome Network (EHEN) event “Exposome Research: Understanding and Addressing Policy Challenges” on 1st June 2023 at 09:00-12:00 CEST.

The European Human Exosome Network (EHEN), which ATHLETE belongs to, is comprised of nine large collaborative research projects. It involves a total of 126 research groups from 24 countries, who share a common goal to understand the health impacts of a lifetime of environmental exposures.

As part of the 2023 EHEN annual meeting, an open event to facilitate the two-way exchange between policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders with an interest in the health effects of environmental exposures will be hosted. This event includes presentations from European policymakers and EHEN researchers on topics such as tackling health at a global level, the Zero Pollution Action Plan, and occupational health and safety. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to, question, and network with other policymakers and multi-disciplinary researchers.

Register by 26th May 2023 to join us in person in Leuven (Belgium) or online!

To ensure we maximise the success of this event, we would also like to ask you to complete our short survey for policy makers to enable us to understand more about your policy challenges and how EHEN can help.
