HBM4EU Final Conference – Science and Policy for a Healthy Future

The conference held on the 27th and 28th of April 2022 at the Thon Hotel EU in Brussels brought together European stakeholders with the HBM4EU consortium creating a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge, build synergies and advance human biomonitoring in Europe as a tool for chemical policy-making.

The overall theme of the 2022 conference was ‘Science and policy for a healthy future’ highlighting the important role HBM4EU plays in linking science and health, environment and chemicals policy to protect human health more effectively.

During the two-day conference, a wide range of topics has been addressed – from harmonisation of procedures and tools at the EU level, to the first EU-wide exposure data, the impact of exposure on health, to novel methods to identify human internal exposure to chemicals and the progress achieved in mixture risk assessment.

The focus was on the transfer of scientific findings into policy recommendations as support for regulation and the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability.

As part of the programme, attendees had the opportunity to visit a storytelling-style exhibition, giving an overview of the main achievements of the project. The key research findings on some of the 18 HBM4EU priority substances were displayed, with a focus on the link between science and policy. Attendees were invited to interact with a European map presenting graphs and figures – showcasing the HBM4EU indicators and key policy messages. Screens featured interviews with top-notch scientists, the HBM4EU’s chemical group leaders, as well as the European Human Biomonitoring Dashboard and can be found under the ‘Exhibition’ tab on the top of this page.
