EU-funded EDC-MixRisk Project Highlights Importance of Considering Combined Exposure to Multiple Chemicals 19 Sep 2018 We are exposed to multiple man-made chemicals from various sources. The EDC-MixRisk research project, coordinated by Karolinska Institutet, Swetox, emphasizes the need to address the effects of chemicals as mixtures in order not to underestimate the risks they pose. The […]

A joint article “Current EU research activities on combined exposure to multiple chemicals” was recently published in Environment International by experts from the five EU-funded research projects, i.e. EDC-MixRisk, EuroMix, EU-ToxRisk, HBM4EU and SOLUTIONS, and European Commission Services and EU Agencies. The paper aims to map current progress, gaps and remaining challenges for the assessment […]

The European Commission (EC) has highlighted EDC-MixRisk research project as a success story among EU-funded research. EDC-MixRisk was selected to the spotlight for the thematic “Health month”, as it has great potential to influence future policies and thus have impact and contribute to better health and lives of numerous people. The success story article “Protecting […]

EDC-MixRisk project has started its final year. It is time to take stock on what has been accomplished in the project so far as well as to take a look at the progress and key results at this stage. The overall concept underpinning EDC-MixRisk is that early life exposure to EDC mixtures induces changes in […]

Five EU-funded H2020 and FP7 research projects i.e. EDC-MixRisk, EuroMix, EU-ToxRisk, HBM4EU and SOLUTIONS, are working together to address different aspects of the impacts of chemical mixtures and combined exposure. The projects have engaged into an exchange between the consortia, European Commission Services and relevant EU Agencies in order to identify remaining gaps in mixture […]

EDC-MixRisk was represented in the meeting by Dr. Anastasia Repouskou from the School of Health Sciences, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. […]

The conference entitled ”Aiming for a Safe Chemical Environment: New Frontiers in the Comprehension of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Exposure, Effects and Specific Risk Assessment Requirements” took place in Les Diablerets, June 3-8, 2018. It was the 11th Gordon Research Conference on Environmental Endocrine Disruptors. EDC-MixRisk was represented in the meeting by Prof. Carl-Gustaf Bornehag from […]

To express concern and raise awareness on hazardous chemical mixtures and combined exposure, the Coordinators and representatives of several EC funded research projects, EDC-MixRisk, EuroMix, EU-ToxRisk, HBM4EU, SOLUTIONS, have sent a position paper (17 April 2018) to Director‐Generals of DG Environment, DG Research and Innovation and DG Health and Food Safety. The position paper entitled […]

Five EC funded H2020 and FP7 research projects i.e. EDC-MixRisk, EuroMix, EU-ToxRisk, HBM4EU and SOLUTIONS, are working together to address different aspects of the impacts of mixtures on human health and the environment, including also research activities at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC). Through this collaboration, synergies, knowledge […]
