OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAMME
The French National Research Programme for Environmental and Occupational Health (PNR EST) is financed by ANSES with funds from the Ministries in charge of the Environment, Agriculture and Labour, and also involves several co-funding partners, including ADEME and ITMO Cancer from the AVIESAN Alliance as part of the Cancer Plan.
The PNR EST promotes knowledge production in support of public policymaking for environmental and occupational health and safety, for the benefit of public health, and contributes to its dissemination to stakeholders. This programme has a leading role in fostering interactions within the scientific community, which helps ANSES mobilise researchers for its collective expert appraisals of health risks.
This programme results in the issue of calls for research proposals. Two calls are being issued in late 2022: the present call, dedicated to the theme "Radiofrequencies and health", and the second, which covers a wide area (excluding radiofrequencies).
OVERVIEW OF THE CALL FOR PROPOSALS
This call for research proposals (CRP) on "Radiofrequencies and health" has been issued following the ANSES expert appraisals on the same subject published since October 2013. The CRP is aiming to create new knowledge, especially to fill gaps or remove doubts that have been highlighted in ANSES's expert appraisals and opinions. It also aims to expand the size of the research community involved in the field of radiofrequencies and health. During the selection process, a strong emphasis will be placed on the quality of the projects' methodologies, insofar as they are intended to be used in future appraisals. Particular interest is paid to research topics whose results can be used rapidly by public policymakers.
