  5. Prioritisation strategy

The Strategy for the prioritisation of substances under HBM4EU was developed in the first half of 2017 and agreed at the meeting of the Governing Board in September 2017.

The strategy sets out the steps involved in identifying substances for research and surveys under the project. The Strategy also includes a set of prioritisation criteria, against which substances were assessed.

Throughout the duration of HBM4EU (2017-2021), three prioritisation rounds took place as shown below.
