The aim is to conceptually and experimentally characterize the impact of radiation in combination with other stressors (metals, organic chemicals, UV) under different environmental conditions, and to assess the cumulative risk. The main objectives are to: 1) establish a thoroughly evaluated set of prediction models for combined effects and cumulative risk assessment (CRA) of multiple stressors ranging from the mode of action (MoA) to the adverse outcome; 2) apply these models to relevant stressors, exposure scenarios, effect endpoints and species to characterize the impact of multiple stressors having similar and dissimilar MoAs; 3) assess and reduce uncertainty CRA of relevance for the RA4 approaches.
