Europe currently has no harmonised approach to ensure that the iodine intake of European citizens is sufficient to prevent health problems. EUthyroid project aims to investigate the iodine intake of the European population as a basis for developing measures for the harmonisation of European iodine intake in cooperation with national authorities.
The EUthyroid kick-off meeting was held on 7-9th September 2015 and hosted by Biolution in Vienna. This meeting gave all consortium members the opportunity to present their organisations and roles in the project and provided a forum in which to discuss the project aims and outline plans for the future.
