Welcome to the official Modernet website
MODERNET (Monitoring trends in Occupational Diseases and tracing new and Emerging Risks in a NETwork) was founded in 2008 as a collaboration between academic centers investigating occupational disease and work-related ill health incidence.
After support from the European Union-funded COST (Cooperation in Science and Technology) programme was obtained for the period 2010-2014: ISCH COST Action IS1002 Modernet, a network for the development of new techniques for discovering trends in occupational and work-related diseases and tracing new and emerging risks. Between 2010-2014 the network could grow involving researchers from many European countries and 1 institute from Australia (Monash University, Melbourne).
After the end of the EU funding, the network continues to function through the collective work and resources of its members.
