The EURION cluster consists of eight projects receiving funding from the same Horizon 2020 call New testing and screening methods to identify endocrine disrupting chemicals. All projects, comprising in total of more than 70 research groups and 50-million-euro funding, are focusing on improved and harmonized methods as well as screening and testing strategies for the less-studied endocrine disruptor related outcomes, such as metabolic diseases, thyroid hormone disruption, female reproduction and developmental neurotoxicity. The cluster, guided by a common international advisory panel, has been formed to optimize synergies and avoid overlaps between projects. The cluster will work together towards the common goal by means of working groups, workshops and meetings as well as data sharing and overall tight collaboration.
