Health Risks: Impacts on health in the Arctic and Europe owing to climate-induced changes in contaminant cycling
01/06/2009 - 30/11/2013
Long-range transport of contaminants to the Arctic, the resulting exposures observed in Arctic human populations, and impacts of such exposures on human health have been the subject of considerable work in recent years, providing a baseline against which to compare future develop...

Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System - Preparatory
01/10/2010 - 30/09/2013
Environmental change and climate change in particular, are expected to be most pronounced in the polar regions. For this reason, a multi-disciplinary research infrastructure covering all important elements of the coupled Earth System in the Arctic
is a very valuable tool to ...

Nordic Network for Research on Fluorinated Compounds
01/10/2010 - 30/09/2013
Nordic Network for Research on Fluorinated Compounds is a network of mainly Nordic scientists working with research on occurrence and adverse effects of a group of anthropogenic, persistent and environmentally hazardous polyfluorinated chemicals (PFC) of which PFOS (perfluoroocta...

Knowledge-based Sustainable Management for Europe's Seas
01/04/2009 - 31/03/2013
Europe’s four regional seas (Baltic, Black, Mediterranean and NE Atlantic) have suffered severe environmental degradation due to human pressure. Existing measures to manage pressures have proven inadequate and the EC has responded by proposing a new policy (Maritime Strategy Blue...

ERA-net: Climate impacts of short-lived pollutants in the Polar Regions
01/01/2010 - 31/12/2012
The CLIMSLIP vision is to understand the radiative forcing in the Arctic caused by Short-Lived Pollutants (SLPs) accurately enough to reliably guide climate policy. The overall CLIMSLIP aim is to reduce uncertainties of the impact of SLPs, particularly of Black Carbon (BC) ae...

Perfluorinated Organics in Our Diet
01/08/2009 - 31/07/2012
Anthropogenic perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) have recently gained socio-economic and scientific interest. PFCs constitute a newly emanating group of environmental contaminants, with physico-chemical as well as toxicological properties different from those of other halogenated co...

Non-exhaust road traffic induced particle emissions - Development of tools for assessing the effect on air quality and exposure
01/01/2010 - 31/12/2011

The overall aim is to provide more accurate modeling and experimental tools for quantification of non-exhaust emissions for Nordic road traffic conditions. This will be achieved by the development and validation of model parameterisations of non-exhaust PM emissions for implem...

European Supersites for Atmospheric Aerosol Research
01/04/2006 - 31/03/2011
The objective of the project EUSAAR is the integration of measurements of atmospheric aerosol properties performed in a distributed network of 20 high quality European ground-based stations. This integration contributes to a sustainable and reliable operational service in support...

European Integrated Project on Aerosol Cloud Climate and Air Quality Interactions
01/01/2007 - 31/12/2010
The European Integrated project on Aerosol Cloud Climate and Air Quality Interactions, EUCAARI, brings together the leading European research groups, state-of-the-art infrastructure and key players from third countries to investigate the role of aerosol on climate and air quality...

Health and Environmental Network
01/11/2006 - 30/04/2010
To protect the health of populations and individuals, policies need to integrate environmental and health issues. The aim of HENVINET is to support such informed policy making. HENVINET will review, exploit and disseminate knowledge on environmental health issues based on researc...
