The Agenda for Research on Chernobyl Health (ARCH) project focused on reviewing the current knowledge about the health effects of the Chernobyl accident, identifying further research needs, and creating the strategic research agenda (SRA). Building on this foundation, the purpose of CO-CHER is to establish an international collaboration to facilitate long-term research on the health effects of the accident.

Collaborative agreements will be sought with the relevant authorities in the three European countries most affected (Belarus, the Russian Federation, and Ukraine), as well as with research bodies and authorities in Europe, Japan, and the USA.

Project duration: 1 February 2014 to 31 July 2016
