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 regional stakeholder workshop, organised by WHO Regional Office for Europe and the HERA work package 3 partners will be hosted online, on Tuesday, 3rd November 2020.

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

HERA online survey to enrich the EU Research Agenda:

The HERA consortium is interested in perspectives of all stakeholders on issues in the environment, climate and health nexus that need scientific support. For the time being, an Interim document featuring the EU Research Agenda and a COVID-19 report have been developed in HERA project in 2019-2020, consulting various stakeholders and researchers. We are looking for further input from all stakeholders right now. The input received with this survey will be used to further enrich the Interim Agenda towards the final HERA Research Agenda, to be delivered in 2021.
