The LIFE KTE EnvHealth network – Knowledge Transfer and Exchange in Environment and Health
The LIFE KTE EnvHealth network was established after the LIFE National Thematic Meeting “Participation, risk perception, knowledge transfer and exchange in environment and health” held in Florence, Italy, on 13 April 2016.
During the meeting, eight LIFE projects discussed about governance issues related to the environment and human health. The questions related to Knowledge Transfer and Exchange (KTE) among researchers, public administrators and other stakeholders are a priority for each of the participating LIFE. LIFE projects in fact, share the ambition and the imperative to contribute to evidence informed public decisions, taking into account scientific knowledge and demands of the whole society. The network aims at exchanging experiences and enhance the work in progress.
LIFE CHROME, Cross-Mediterranean Environment and Health Network, has already requested the participation, which has been positively received.
Further LIFE projects are invited to join the network by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, GIOCONDA Project Manager.
