Scope of the symposium:

SETAC Europe organises a series of Special Science Symposia (SESSS) to debate current scientific issues in a regulatory context, for example, the testing, evaluation, risk assessment and management of chemicals in the environment, as well as to strengthen the link between science and regulatory decision-making.

This SESSS will show a series of new developments that facilitate the extrapolation of adverse effects, caused by chemical exposure, observed in experiments amongst different levels of biological organisation. Different methodologies will be showcased, such as Quantitative Adverse Outcome Pathways, Toxicokinetic-Toxicodynamic modelling, Population models, Ecosystem/food chain models and landscape level models.

The symposium will start with the regulatory views from EFSA, ECHA and the European Commission on the implementation of these new developments into Environmental Risk Assessment. This will be followed by a series of expert presentations on novel experimental and modelling approaches, as well as successful case studies on how these approaches could inform future Environmental Risk Assessments of chemicals. Learn more about the programme here.

This SESSS is a must to gain insights in the needs of regulators and industry, while a great opportunity for researchers to present the latest approaches. We will foster interaction between delegates and speakers and generate a high level and quality of scientific debate.
