Llamada de expresiones de interés dentro del proyecto europeo HBM4EU
As a continuation of the activities of Work Package 9 – Laboratory analysis and quality assurance we contact you as National Contact Point to kindly ask for your collaboration.
The final lists of qualified laboratories have been published this year and the analytical phase is ongoing and hopefully it will be completed in early 2021. Therefore, there is no need to identify national laboratories to perform the chemical analysis in HBM4EU anymore. Our goal now is more ambitious and focused on building up and supporting the future of human biomonitoring in Europe. So far, the activities in T9.2 has allowed to stablish a network of analytical laboratories with experience in the analysis of environmental chemicals in human samples and the idea is to extend and Improve this network in order to stablish a solid European network of HBM laboratories, connecting the experts in this field and providing opportunities to share experiences and to work together in a scientific framework of cooperation.
WP9 leads kindly ask you to identify laboratories with experience in the analysis of environmental chemicals in human samples and send us their contact details (name of the laboratory, contact person and email address). As this should be an open, public and transparent process you can also nominate laboratories out of the consortium and disseminate it in networks, fora, etc. you consider relevant. The data received will be used for sending the laboratories a questionnaire for collecting information about their experience, needs, etc.
We remind you the importance of your laboratory nominations since the European network of HBM laboratories, will be part of the legacy of HBM4EU for future human biomonitoring actions in Europe.
