Berlin Conference Wraps Up EU's New OSH Era
Four years of meetings and dialogue among partner agencies have created a network that will move ahead on EU-wide research, if funding support is maintained.
The final conference of Europe's New OSH Era project takes place Feb. 25-26 in Berlin, Germany, capping four years of work and meetings by the consortium that began with a 2006 meeting in Rome. The consortium has analyzed the state of OSH research within the EU and identified gaps to be filled; it intends to foster research on new and emerging workplace risks faced by EU workers, has issued its call for research proposals on psychosocial risks at work, and is working on a second call for proposals now.
The seventh and final New OSH Era newsletter, dated February 2010, is available here.
Partner agencies have created a network that will move ahead on EU-wide research, if funding support is maintained, the newsletter reports.
