LIFECYCLE is a european research project (funded through the EU H2020 programme) which willl establish the EuroCHILD Cohort Network,bringing together existing, successful pregnancy and child cohorts and biobanks, to generate new integrated data on early life stressors related to socio-economic, migration, urban environment and life-style determinants. Ultimately, LIFECYCLE will lead to a unique sustainable EuroCHILD Cohort Network, and provide recommendations for targeted prevention strategies by identification of novel markers of early life stressorsrelated to health trajectories throughout the lifecycle.
