Workshop UIC-LRI “Long-Range Research Initiative”

Start date: 27 May. 2011

Objective

LRI (Long-Range Initiative) Programme

The focus of LRI is on gaps in industry’s knowledge and understanding that are critical for risk assessment. The broad aim is a validated infrastructure of scientific advice on which the entire industry and regulatory bodies will draw to respond more quickly and accurately to the public’s questions.

LRI sponsors research to help address some of the priorities of the European public health strategy:

– Improving risk assessment of chemicals and more specifically monitoring effects of chemicals on health
– Understanding the environmental factors in human health
– Establishing endocrine disruption references
– Coordinating research, data and activities at a European level

LRI provides financial support for independent research in four focus areas:

– Environmental fate and effects of chemical substances
– Environmental and human exposure assessment
– Risk assessment methodologies
– Endocrine disruption

 

Date & Venue

The Workshop is taking place on 27th of May at Maison de la Chimie, 28, rue Saint-Dominique, 75007 Paris.
