Flemish Center of Expertise on Environment and Health
The Flemish Center of Expertise on Environment and Health is a scientific knowledge pool for environmental health in Flanders (Belgium), since 2001. The consortium consists of researchers from the five Flemish universities (Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Hasselt, Leuven) and research institutes VITO and PIH.
Flemish Environment and Health Study (FLEHS)
Since 2002 a human biomonitoring network has been established by the Center as part of a program on environmental health surveillance. Up to now, three FLEHS studies were implemented: FLEHS I (2002-2006), FLEHS II (2007-2011) and FLEHS III (2012-2015), and a fourth cycle is ongoing (2016-2020). This fourth cycle builds on strengths and experiences from the past and also addresses new upcoming challenges.
