Abstract

In the fourth programme on medical and health research (1987-1991) of the European Community, COMAC Epidemiology, an expert advisory group to the programme, was responsible for 19 concerted actions in three out of six research targets (cancer, age-related health problems, environment and life-style related health problems). The main objectives of the workshop which is the subject of this report were: (i) to evaluate past experience in order to identify common traits, problems, and solutions which might prove useful to investigators taking part in a new generation of epidemiological studies at the European level; (ii) to discuss options and problems in conducting comparable surveys in Europe; (iii) to review ethical issues in epidemiological research.
