The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission’s science and knowledge service to support EU policies with independent evidence.
The Chemical Safety and Alternative Methods Unit incorporating the European Union Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL-ECVAM) at the JRC Ispra site in Italy (https://eurl-ecvam.jrc.ec.europa.eu ) is organising a three-day Summer School on May 16-19, 2017.
The “JRC Summer School on Alternative Approaches for Risk assessment” intends to promote the use of alternative methods within chemical risk assessment. It will be tailored for post-graduate students (PhD/Master) and young scientists, with the aim to give insight into principles and methodologies of human health and environmental risk assessment from a scientific, regulatory, and industrial perspective focusing on alternative (non-animal) methods.
Pre-registration is now open until 14th February 2017 at JRC-F3-SUMMER-SCHOOL@ec.europa.eu
