EDC-MixRisk is a four-year project financed through the EU Commission’s programme Horizon 2020, which started in the spring of 2015. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 634880.

EDC-MixRisk focuses on the effects of mixtures of endocrine disruptive chemicals on children by developing methods for risk assessment. The aim is to promote use of safer chemicals for the next generations.

EDC-MixRisk involves participation from six Swedish Swetox-universities, five European and one American.
