National Research Programme for Environmental and Occupational Health: results of the 2020 calls for research projects, including: endocrine disruptors, nanoparticles, microplastics and combined exposure
Today, ANSES is publishing the list of projects selected as part of the 2020 calls for research projects for the National Research Programme for Environmental and Occupational Health. Thirty-four projects were chosen following the selection process, with total funding of six million euros.
The projects selected in 2020 relate to one or more types of environmental and occupational exposure:
Seventeen projects concern chemical agents, of which 10 are on endocrine disruptors and five on plant protection products:
(*) Four of them focus on radiofrequencies and health;
(*) Six address issues of ind
(*) oor or outdoor air quality, including two on air pollution, and two on particles and nanoparticles in the workplace;
(*) Two are concerned with light pollution, including one on its endocrine-disrupting effect;
(*) Two projects deal with the emerging issue of microplastics;
(*) Three projects focus on pathogens, including two on their vectors, in the framework of vector control.
Ten of these projects are concerned with multiple exposure to chemical and/or physical agents and "cocktail" effects.
