CHronic exposure scenarios driving enviRONmental rIsks of Chemicals

Project description

Investigating the impacts of long-term, low-dose chemical exposure on health

It has been proven that high-level and long-term exposure to chemical agents can result in chronic illness. However, what is the case with low-dose chronic chemical exposure? The EU-funded CHRONIC project aims to answer this question. To that end, it will deliver a cohort of highly-skilled and informed future research leaders trained in understanding long-term, low-dose chemical exposure and its interactions with other environmental stressors. Through training-by-research and joint courses, the project will focus on low chronic exposure to contaminants in different environmental organisms (macrophytes, invertebrates, vertebrates) and end-of-line systems (freshwater, sediment, soil). The findings will assist in the development of scientifically based monitoring strategies.
