This report documents the first year of operation of the Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP). The institute aims to play a leading role in support of EU policies in emerging areas of health and consumer protection in order to offer the citizens an improved, predictable and efficient regulatory environment based on solid scientific foundations.

During 1999, the IHCP has gone through a phase of natural evolution, on both scientific and organizational aspects. In the start up phase, great efforts have been spent for establishing the basis for the future institute development by setting up strategic orientations and establishing objectives, rationalizing the staff table and providing the needed infrastructure. Nevertheless, the year 1999 was very fruitful in terms of the scientific results produced. The report describes a wide range of projects, scientific highlights and structures of the IHCP. .
