Overview of the BBEMG project (2017-2021)

The Belgian BioElectroMagnetics Group (BBEMG) investigates health effects of electric fields and magnetic induction generated by the transport and the use of electric power in our daily life and places of work (50 Hz). 

In the current 2017-2021 project, Belgian researchers from three universities (Liège, Gent, Brussels) and one research institute (Brussels).are involved. Six research teams work together in a multidisciplinary way: litterature overview & risk analysis, cumulative environmental nuisances, meta-analysis of childhood leukaemia, gene expression profiles following EMF exposure, cytogenetic biomonitoring of EMF-exposed workers, electrohypersensitivity, and also EMF exposure modelling from HV network.


Please feel free to contact teams for questions regarding their studies.
