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
Dear colleagues and friends
we have hit a record for the next European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV) congress, which will take place in Juan les Pins, France from October 17 to 21, 2016. Indeed, the Scientific Committee accepted about 65 and 175 abstracts for oral communications and posters, respectively. Thanks to your great interest in our congress, we have prepared an exciting scientific final program. You can download it from our website : www.estiv2016.com
We would like also to remind you that the deadline for early bird registrations is approaching soon (July 15, 2016), so we encourage you and your colleagues to register before this date to benefit from our reduced registration rates.
To register to the congress and book your hotel, please visit our website www.estiv2016.com where you will find a link to the convention center registration/housing webpage.
We wish you a wonderful summer and a nice holiday time. We hope to see you in the French Riviera in October to have a great time together !!

On November 26, 2015, BelTox and INVITROM organized a symposium in Antwerp, Belgium.
The program is still available on this website. Photos and presentations will soon be available.

The posters and presentations of the annual INVITROM symposium “Biology meets Technology: Organ-on-a-Chip & Biosensors” can be seen in the members-only part of this website. To view the posters and presentations, click here…
On March 25, 2015, INVITROM held her annual symposium entitled “Biology meets Technology: Organ-on-a-Chip & Biosensors”. Even though the symposium was organized in parallel with the SOT in San Diego, which was visited by a number of INVITROM members, the symposium in Breda attracted a good number of attendants. The general reactions were very positive!
Photos and presentations will be available shortly on the members-only part of this website.
