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. FIOH, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, is the consortium's coordinator. Partner agencies are located in Finland, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, Greece, France, the Netherlands, and Spain.
