The Long-Range Research Initiative Programme (LRI) of the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) is organising its 16th annual workshop to discuss what’s needed to streamline the science argumentation and consensus process.
The workshop will also showcase the results and outcomes of several LRI projects completed in 2013-2014. The key areas of discussion will be the impact of the LRI projects with focus on exposure, biomonitoring, toxicogenomics, sediment transformation, dose-response, and benefit-risk analysis .
For more details, you may download the final programme.

The workshop is taking place at the Sheraton Brussels Hotel, Place Rogier 3, B-1210, on 19 and 20 November, 2014.
