An international team of scientists in the areas of epidemiology, environmental science and biosciences collaborates on developing and applying new approaches to the scenario assessment. It focuses on the areas of transport, energy, agriculture, industry, household, and waste treatment and disposal. HEIMTSA aims to support the Environment and Health Action Plan (EHAP) 2004-2010 by developing and improving health impact assessment (HIA) and cost benefit analysis (CBA) methods and tools. The tools will improve the evaluation of health impacts scenarios for policy makers throughout Europe.

NILU takes on an important role in this project by leading two sub-projects. It is further participating in the other sub-projects and work packages. Several NILU departments are involved in the work of HEIMTSA.
