The LRI programme funds research studies on three priority areas which are key for addressing global challenges:
- Innovating Chemical Testing; studies that develop tools and approaches to reduce chemical testing costs, time and animal uses. The programme also funds studies that advance approaches for interpreting data from chemical testing as well as studies that facilitate the attainment of regulatory data requirements.
- Understanding Everyday Exposures to Chemicals; studies that generate predictive models to estimate consumer exposure and to address current exposure data gaps for the majority of chemicals in commerce.
- Translating Research Outcomes for Product Safety; studies that advance chemical safety assessment and aim to increase consumer confidence in product safety and acceptance of innovation.
