NEW: HORIZON SCANNING - MIDDLE EAST   

SETAC, the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (www.setac.org) is conducting a novel global horizon scanning project.

We would be grateful for your assistance in promoting a web-based solicitation of research questions that, if answered, would substantially advance our understanding of stresses to sustainable environmental quality.
Please click on the link below to access the solicitation. In most cases, the submission will require no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Please also forward the link and information about the solicitation to your colleagues in the Middle East and encourage them to submit their questions.

Questions submitted via this website will be synthesized by a team of public, private, academic and non-profit sector experts into a list of the top research priorities of relevance to the Middel East.

The survey started in Africa and future surveys will focus on Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America in the coming months. These questions will be disseminated to the policy, industry, and scientific communities.

All responses to the solicitation will be strictly confidential.

If you have any questions about this exercise, please contact Bryan Brooks, Gary Ankley, Alistair Boxall or Murray Rudd.

Thank you for your interest in identifying global priorities for research.

Drs. Bryan Brooks, Gary Ankley, Alistair Boxall and Murray Rudd
