Goals & Benefits

The overall goal of this network activity is to interlink scientific knowledge on prevention of OSD. This means in detail:

For employees across the EU

  • Implementation and/or improvement of preventive medical care due to specialized, evidenced based prevention

  • Protection of individuals from detrimental socioeconomic OSD sequelae, due to job loss and unemployment, increasing psycho-social well-being and personal quality of life

For the participating countries

  • Increase of competitiveness particularly of smaller and medium enterprises, which are economically more fragile to a reduction of productivity of workforce by OSD

  • Long term reduction of costs for social insurance systems, employers and tax payers

For specialists and researches

  • Possibility of participation in a broad interdisciplinary network

  • Exchange of knowledge and dissemination of existing experience in a joint coordinated effort, under the umbrella of the EADV. For this purpose the organization of joint workshops and symposia that cooperate with relevant professional national associations is planned. Results of meetings and shared experiences will be published in scientific journals to reach even a broader community from the field of dermatology and occupational medicine, implemented in the EADV annual meetings and also disseminated to countries that are so far not incorporated in this specific project. The spread of knowledge gained by this project will be substantially alleviated by the involvement of the project partners in the EADV campaign.
