  • Fifth Framework Programme 1998-2002 - Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources. Catalogue of selected projects 1998-2002 - Key Action 4: Environment & Health


The Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Programme, part of the 5th EU RTD Programme, includes 6 Key Actions. The general objective of Key Action 4, "Environment and Health", was to study the health effects of air pollution, noise, dust and fibres, heavy metals and other toxic chemicals, UV light, electromagnetic radiation and to find ways to prevent them. Special attention was paid to pollution in the workplace and to effects on children and other vulnerable groups. There was an excellent response from researchers, industries and other stakeholders to the research priorities defined, and now there is a comprehensive portfolio of collaborative projects funded and running.

This catalogue gives details of all the running projects. It is available in printed form and also as a CD-ROM. It can also be downloaded from the (CORDIS Document Library).
