HEIMTSA

Health and environment integrated methodology and toolbox for scenario assessment (2007-2010)

In 2008 MSC-E took part in the EU HEIMTSA project under the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission (EC). The project aims to support the Environment and Health Action Plan (EHAP) by extending health impact assessment (HIA) and cost benefit analysis (CBA) methods and tools so that environment and health impacts of policy scenarios in key sectors can be evaluated reliably at the European level. The role of MSC-E in the project was to assess by means of its chemical transport models the atmospheric dispersion of selected heavy metals and POPs and their concentration in different environmental media.
