PEROSH, the Partnership for European Research in Occupational Safety and Health, organises bi-annual research conferences, exclusively for its members since 2015. The first conference was in Warsaw, Poland, followed by a second one in Sankt Augustin, Germany.

The main objective of this PEROSH conference is to allow both early stage and experienced researchers to share their latest findings with their colleagues from the other PEROSH institutes and to give opportunities for networking and a platform for potential collaborations for international research projects.

The first two conferences were very successful and resulted in closer contacts between the member institutes and its researchers, development of joint projects or joint applications for research funding. Some of these examples are: joint HORIZON 2020 applications and exchange visits of researchers between the member institutes.

On 11th September 2019, we organised the third PEROSH Research Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. This third edition accommodated 29 high-quality abstracts. The conference had three parallel sessions on the following themes:

  1. Sustainable and prolonged working life
    How are we tackling current and emerging challenges? (for instance, emerging challenges from digitalisation of work)
  2. Carcinogens and chemical substances
    How do we deal with occupational cancer and increased awareness of chemical exposures in the workplace?
  3. Impact on society
    How do we realise and measure the impact of our research outcomes to improve workplace health and safety?

In this book of abstracts, one can find the final programme and all names and contributions of the speakers. Some of the presenters gave their permission to make their presentation publicly available for download. You can find these in the PEROSH repository and you can search on title or author.
