Welcome to EOM

The European Society for Environmental and Occupational Medicine (EOM), was founded in 2011 by a group of European scientists, who recognized a need for cooperative European efforts supporting the research in the areas of environmental and occupational health.
EOM aims to strengthen independent interdisciplinary basic biomedical research on emerging new environmental work-related health problems.
EOM is registered charity (since 2012) with wide range contacts to university departments, governmental agencies and professional bodies.
EOM responds with the society view to consultive documents, topics of interest and guidelines concerning the specialty of the society.

An expanding number of human healt problems have been linked to occupational or environmental exposures.


The global changes in the production, trade, logistic, and economic fields are combined with new health hazards for thousends of European workers for consumers and the environment.


Such new hazards may need new methods to identify them, new basic information on possible new toxic, carcinogenic and allergic effects.




Increase the European cooperation and maintain interdisciplinary research network between independent scientists, physicians and practitioners.
