The overall aim of ENRIECO is to advance our knowledge on specific environment and health causal relationships in pregnancy and birth cohorts by providing support to exploitation of the wealth of data generated by past or ongoing studies funded by the EC and national programmes. Specific objectives are to make inventories of birth cohorts, assure quality and interoperability of exposure, health and exposure-response data, obtain data access, build databases, conduct analysis, make recommendations for data collection in the future to improve environment-health linkages and information, and disseminate the information. The project will bring together over 30 pregnancy and birth cohorts and information on around 250,000 newborns, infants and children from across Europe. The outcome will be structuring and consolidation of often fragmented data from various studies undertaken throughout Europe and will improve the knowledge base for FP 7 Cooperation Work Programme 2008: Environment (including climate change) environment and health linkages. Data regarding environment-health causal relationships will be more readily available in a form useful for policy makers.
