Abstract Report on a conference on air quality research needs held in Brussels, Belgium, on 15-16 January 2007, organized with the collaboration of the European Commission's Directorate General Research. The aims were to foster a multidisciplinary approach to identifying research needs, serve as a forum for international exchange and provide the opportunity for participants to reveal gaps in order to identify areas for future studies. Topics addressed included studies of the mortality and morbidity in the European population, the impact of traffic emissions on public health, elucidating the mechanisms of toxic action, development of toxicity screening tests and impact of particulate matter metrics on human health.
