Environmental issues and local population exposures at former military sites in Central and Eastern European countries
- Detection and remediation of environmental and health impacts related to military sites in CEE countries.
- Exposure science and risk assessment approaches for military sites in CEE countries.
- Disease outcomes and population-based studies related to military sites in CEE countries.
Conference CEECHE 2018: Environmental and Health Issues in Fast Changing Economies, Congress Centre of the University of Agriculture in Kraków, Poland (Al. 29 Listopada 46) on 10-14 June 2018.
Since the late 1980s, Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have been prioritizing environmental issues and associated disease risks related to legacy contamination. Recent fast economic growth has continued to increase environmental impacts and health concerns. The Central and Eastern European Conference on Health and the Environment (CEECHE) is an initiative of the United States and European institutions to facilitate scientific exchange. CEECHE conferences have been held at venues across CEE countries since 2004 to better define the complex but common links between health and environment and enable the use of shared understandings of current research.
CEECHE 2018 in Kraków, Poland will focus on air pollution, persistent organic pollutants, contaminants at mining and military sites in CEE countries, and will also highlight research related to environmental toxicology and mechanistic biology studies, disease risks and intervention approaches to improve health. In addition, novel environmental remediation technologies, risk assessment approaches, socio-economic and policy implications will also be discussed.
