It brings together nearly 200 partners from 28 countries and three EU Agencies (for the environment – EEA, chemicals – ECHA and food safety – EFSA): the European partnership launched on 1st May aims to reduce exposure to hazardous chemicals and their impact on health and the environment.
The European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC) is coordinated by Anses in France. It is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon Europe framework programme and by the project partners. It is scheduled to last 7 years and will end in spring 2029.
The aim is to produce new, easily accessible and usable data, as well as new assessment methods and tools. In particular, PARC will develop tools to identify new, less hazardous substances that are consistent with sustainable development approaches.
