In the era of global environmental change, we must improve the connections between environment, climate and health. The challenges we face are undeniably complex and numerous. Therefore, in-depth, transdisciplinary fundamental and applied knowledge is required, as well as science dissemination, science-policy-society dialogue. This will help us to move forward and ensure relevant design and effective implementation of public policies on European, national and local levels.

In the framework of the HERA project (Health and Environment Research Agenda for Europe), regional stakeholder workshops are being organised in order to further identify, analyse, cluster and prioritise key topics in the environment, climate and health nexus that require scientific support in Europe in the next decade.

The France-Belgium-The Netherlands workshop, co-organised by

- the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES),

- the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM),

- the Department of Environment & Spatial Development, Flanders (dOMG) and

- the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM),

will be hosted online, on Tuesday October 20, 2020.

The exchanges and ideas discussed during this workshop provide an opportunity to shape future European scientific research and its applications.
