The course will highlight modern methods and recent methodological approaches in occupational epidemiology, with a particular focus on international efforts in coordination and harmonisation in the field.

The format of the course will be based on a series of faculty lectures, student presentations, and student exercises, in addition to keynote lectures highlighting recent achievements.
