The European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC), which is being launched in Paris, France is seeking to develop next-generation chemical risk assessment, incorporating both human health and the environment in a “One Health” approach. It will help support the European Union’s Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability and the European Green Deal’s “zero polution” ambition. Bringing together nearly 200 from 28 countries as well as EU agencies (EEA, ECHA and EFSA), PARC is coordinated by ANSES, with funding on an equal basis from Horizon Europe, the 9th EU research and innovation framework programme and the partnership’s participants. The partnership will run for seven years. Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health will be included in this partnership as an affiliated entity (AE).
