The EPHOR project
will advance occupational health science to reduce the burden of disease.
The working life exposome
is defined as all occupational and related non-occupational exposure factors
Our aim
is to develop a working life exposome toolbox that can be used for evidence-based and cost-effective prevention by scientists, occupational health practitioners, and policy makers
Our approach
is to uniquely combine large-scale pooling of existing cohorts, systematically looking at many types of exposures and diseases with the collection of new data in two case studies

About the
project

In the EPHOR project we will lay the groundwork for evidence-based and cost-effective prevention for improving health at work, by developing a working life exposome toolbox. This exceptional consortium consists of 19 exposure, health, and data technology scientists and technology partners from 12 different countries. Together we will advance occupational health science in a unique way to reduce the burden of disease.
