Launch of ELLIS

On Monday 23 December 2019, ELLIS saw the light. The project is funded by the BELSPO BRAIN-be 2.0 (2018-2023) program, and aims to develop policy-relevant tools to monitor and mitigate environmental health inequalities in Belgium. The project foresees funding for two PhD students – one in demography, focusing on socioeconomic deprivation and inequalities, and one in environmental sciences, focusing on environmental exposures and policy scenarios.


ELLIS is funded by the Belgian Federal Science Policy (BELSPO) through the BRAIN-be 2.0 (2018-2023) programme.
