SETAC Interest Groups

SETAC Interest Groups provide a vital forum for professionals in the environmental sciences to advance a scientific topic under the SETAC umbrella, with oversight from governance. The groups’ activities range from sponsorship of platform and poster sessions at SETAC global meetings to proposing and supporting focused topic meetings, symposia and workshops. They are also instrumental in identifying current scientific topics of interest to the society.
