Exchanging ideas between SETAC and ISES on the role of exposure science in the context of hazard and risk assessment of (emerging) chemicals

A special welcome to ISES members to the SETAC Europe Annual Meeting!

Registration is open.

The central theme of the conference is “Environmental Quality through Transdisciplinary Collaboration”. Within this general theme, SETAC and the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) are setting up a collaboration with the aim of “exchanging ideas on the role of exposure science” in the context of hazard and risk assessment of (emerging) chemicals.

We are delighted to announce three initiatives within this context for the SETAC Europe Annual Meeting 2017 in Brussels:

  • A special session (session 8.01) entitled “Do we have the right tools to identify emerging hazards and risks?” is organised by chairs from both societies and renowned invited speakers. Chairs for this session are Georg Streck (European Commission), Yuri Bruinen de Bruin (European Commission), Jos Bessems (European Commission) and Joost Bakker (RIVM, Netherlands).
  • Several other sessions in the scientific programme, being organised over the entire conference, are also interesting for bringing together SETAC and ISES members around exposure science and emerging hazards and risks. These sessions invite abstracts for oral and poster presentations on a wide range of topics, including endocrine disruptors, microplastics, nanomaterials, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, natural toxins, metals, etc.
  • A business meeting between invited SETAC and ISES members to explore and discuss opportunities for further collaboration. Exposure Modelling Interest Group Business Meeting, Wednesday 10 May, 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm, Meeting Studio 311 & 312.

A module for late-breaking science abstract submission (poster only!) is now open. Abstracts can be submitted until 26 April 2017.

For any questions, please contact Roel Evens (SETAC Europe Science Manager) or Karel De Schamphelaere (Conference Chair) or Yuri Bruinen de Bruin (Liaison to the International Society of Exposure Science).
