Brussels, 25 Jan 2005
The Society of Environmental Toxicology And Chemistry (SETAC) is organising a conference entitled 'The raison d'être of environmental toxicology and chemistry: From obvious to tedious effects in a changing world', to take place in Lille, France, from 22 to 26 May.
The aim of the conference is to exchange news and views between environmental scientists, toxicologists, chemists, epidemiologists, social scientists and experts in economics, policy making, as well as between academia, industry and government.
Special emphasis will be given to multiscale approaches to evaluating ecosystem health, and international cooperations working on harmonising risk assessment and management. The meeting will be an opportunity to learn more about EU coordinated research programmes, research needs for new EU legislation (including the water framework directive and the REACH directive).
The technical sessions are to focus on both 'classical' topics, including sources, fate, sampling, analysis, effects, biomarkers, risk assessment, and risk management, as well as on special topics referring to the theme of the conference.
