€ 100.000 Award for Ecotoxicology
Europe cooperates with the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) to
present the Long-range Research Innovative Science Award. The € 100.000 prize
aims to promote innovation in the fields of toxicology and ecotoxicology.
Especially early career scientists are invited to submit a proposal for
research in the broad fields of ecotoxicology, including but not limited to 1)
eco-quality and eco-epidemiology, 2) eco-relevance of risk assessment
procedures and 3) alternative methods in ecological safety.
