Environmental exposures and child health – a new European study
Coordinated by Martine Vrijheid from CREAL, HELIX has received €8.6M from the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme. It aims to build an early life “Exposome”, a collection of all early-life environmental exposures affecting children, and it has 4 years and a half, from January 2013 to July 2017, to do so. HELIX will develop tools to measure the exposome, including the use of smartphones and biological markers.
The project involves 13 partners from eight European countries, including two SME’s and six birth cohort studies from France, Greece, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.
