    Researchers hold workshop on combining European birth cohort data to benefit child health research

    On 29 and 30 March, a workshop was be held at CREAL in Barcelona to discuss how data analysis can be optimised. The workshop is co-funded by EUCCONET, The European Child Cohorts Network and CHICOS (Dr. Martine Vrijheid, CREAL researcher, is the coordinator of CHICOS project), a European (FP7) project funded to develop a child cohort research strategy for Europe. The meeting will be attended mainly by European cohort researchers who are currently involved in pooling data across cohorts or who are planning to do so in the future. Topics for discussion have been chosen based on the current stage of various available case studies, and their relevance to known and arising public health issues in children, and birth cohort research. This meeting will form the basis for a step-by-step guide to combined birth/child cohort analyses.
