Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


During 1997, as its primary mission, the Environment Institute (EI) has further consolidated its role in the provision of neutral and independent scientific and technical support for the development, implementation and monitoring of the European Union environmental policy. The EI carries out its work by participating in some 80 international networks with more than 650 partners including universities, research organizations, national and regional official bodies and industries. During 1997, an adequate balance between research and support activities has allowed the Institute to provide effective support to European Union (EU) policies, while improving its scientific and technical expertise. The EI has complemented its institutional activities through participation in various competitive schemes, which has allowed the Institute to work in close co-operation with some of the leading research centres in Europe. During 1997, 25 new shared-cost action projects were won, dealing with topics that can be broadly grouped into the following areas:

- Particles and photo-oxidants in tropospheric chemistry;
- Climate-change effects on freshwater resources in Europe;
- Air quality and effects of pollutants on the European population;
- Development of analytical methods for food control;
- Environmental risk assessment;
- Endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
