SETAC Europe 27th Annual Meeting: Environmental Quality Through Transdisciplinary Collaboration

(May 7-11) Brussels

Scientific Programme

The SETAC Europe Annual Meeting in 2017 in Brussels will be the number one meeting place where ecotoxicology, toxicology, environmental and human exposure, risk assessment and management, environmental policy and economics, as well as life cycle assessment topics will be presented. This will stimulate discussion and debate among academia, business, industry and government representatives and will enable durable inter- and trans-disciplinary networking and collaboration.

Given the complexity of multiple stressors (chemical, biological, physical) and stressor combinations in the environment, and the vast amount of biodiversity requiring protection (species, ecosystem structure and functioning), the key to successful and efficient environmental quality management will hinge upon trans-disciplinary collaboration between environmental and human toxicologists, environmental chemists, and scientists and policy-makers from a diversity of disciplines, including conservation biology, ecology, human health, engineering, sociology, law, and economy.
The overarching theme of the meeting is therefore “Environmental quality through transdisciplinary collaboration”.
