HBM4EU partners in Sweden

HBM4EU linked third parties in Sweden

The activities within the Swedish National Hub are in many ways connected to the Swedish national Health Related Monitoring Programme, which is a part of the monitoring programme coordinated by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, the Swedish National Hub can gain experience from other research programmes that the partners and linked third parties are involved in.

The Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) hosts data collected in national and regional health-related environmental monitoring in Sweden. Data and reports prepared within the framework of the Swedish Health-Related Monitoring Programme are available here.

The HBM4EU project was launched in 2016 with the aim of improving the collective understanding of human exposure to hazardous chemicals and developing HBM as an exposure assessment method. The project had €74m in funding and jointly implemented by 120 partners from 28 participating countries – 24 EU member states plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Israel and the European Environment Agency. One of its aims was to ensure the sustainability of HBM in the EU beyond 2021. The project ended in June 2022. The website will not be updated any longer, except the page on peer reviewed publications, but will be online until 2032.
