EPHOR will develop methods and tools to characterise the working-life exposome. By applying these, better and more complete knowledge on the working-life exposome will be obtained. Through uniquely combining large-scale pooling of existing data (>40 cohorts; ~ 21 million people) systematically looking at many types of exposure and diseases with the collection of new data in case studies in which the effects of working-life exposure on respiratory health in the general population and night shift workers will be investigated.
