Our project is called FREIA – Female Reproductive toxicity of EDCs: a human evidence-based screening and Identification Approach, after the Nordic Goddess of fertility.

FREIA is a collaboration between eleven institutes from seven European countries and the USA. Via our academic collaborations, international stakeholders and Scientific Advisory Board, FREIA involvement even stretches worldwide. 

The FREIA project is part of the EURION cluster, which consists of eight projects that were funded under EU call SC1-BHC-27-2018.

The project coordinator is Prof. Majorie van Duursen (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, NL). To contact the project management, you can fill out the contact form or send an e-mail to
