ECO28: Modelling approaches for a scenario based assessment of chemically induced impacts on aquatic macroinvertebrate communities (MACROMOD)

The ecological risk assessment (ERA) of chemicals aims at quantifying the likelihood of adverse ecological effects posed on populations and the communities they comprise (sensu Forbes et al. 2011). Effects caused by the exposure of organisms to toxicants can however […]

ECO29-UVA: Application of chemostat systems to include adaptation of microbial communities in persistency testing (CHEMADAPT)

Persistence in the environment is a key property in assessing the environmental risks of organic chemicals. Currently, persistence is most often determined using screening tests such as the OECD ready biodegradability tests and sometimes with simulation tests designed to model […]

ECO27-USHE: Chemicals: Assessment of Risks to Ecosystem Services (CARES)

Aim: To facilitate engagement of the chemical industry, academia and regulators to help develop and evaluate the ecosystem service approach in guiding risk assessment schemes for any type of xenobiotic chemical. Objectives: Review and evaluate state of knowledge and available […]

ECO19-RUG: ChimERA – An integrated modelling tool for ecological risk assessment

The first objective of this project is to couple separate exposure and effect models (here called'sub-models') into a chemical integrated exposure and effect ecosystem model for ecological risk assessment (ChimERA) for the aquatic environment. This will be realized by combining […]
