Short description: NOMIRACLE aims to develop integrated risk assessment models to address interactions between the environment and human health. 
Long description: NOMIRACLE has seven scientific objectives: 1 To develop methods to assess the cumulative risk of exposure to several stressors 2 To improve integration between the analysis of environmental and human health effects 3 To improve understanding of complicated exposure assessment and develop tools for adequate assessment 4 To develop a framework for the description and interpretation of cumulative exposure and effect 5 To quantify, characterise and reduce uncertainty in cumulative risk assessments 6 To develop methods that account for geographical and cultural differences across Europe, including perception of risk 7 To improve provision for application of the precautionary principle
