Policy Options

Resources for policymakers, supported by scientific evidence and economic analysis, to inform the development of future policies.

Policy options, backed up by robust scientific evidence generated during the project, will be published in a policy briefing at the end of the project. The options will consider current policy and help inform the development of future policies at local, regional, national and EU levels. The policy options will incorporate economic aspects and ‘what-if’ scenarios, via the Economic Simulation Platform, to ensure that the associated costs and benefits associated are also provided to policymakers.

To enable more effective translation of the research findings into potential social innovations and real policy change, two ‘Science Connecting Policy’ workshops will be held during the project. The first workshop will allow policymakers early engagement with the project. The second will be used to disseminate the policy options resulting from the LongITools project.

Timescale for completion: Winter 2024


Science Connecting Policy Workshop

Our first Science Connecting Policy workshop “Health and Environment Dynamics: Translating Exposome Research to Support Integrated Policymaking” will take place on Friday 9th June at 10.00 am CET. The aim of the workshop is to raise awareness of the importance of the exposome with policymakers. We will explore how research outputs could contribute to reducing the burdens associated with the epidemics of chronic cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Find out more.
