GA²LEN, of which EFA is a partner, presented their priorities for environmental research during the Open Stakeholder Consultation "Priorities for environment and health research in FP7", organized by the European Commission's DG for Research, section on Environment on 22 May 2006 in Brussels.  There is a need for more research studies to be carried out to understand the role played by environmental factors (indoor and outdoor pollution - climate changes) and the increase of allergic diseases. The aim of the meeting was to present the first draft of the FP7 research priorities under the research area on Environment and Health, and we are delighted that the air pollution is one of the priorities. The European Commission and DG Research have also announced a significant increase in the research budget for FP7 to 73 billion euros and a structure based on four specific programmes (Cooperation, Ideas, People and Capacities).
