11th Cefic LRI Annual workshop “Scientific Contributions to Chemical Policies”

Start date: 19 Nov. 2009

The Cefic LRI 11th Annual Workshop featured how LRI has put science at contribution towards chemical policies, looking at multi-angle perspectives, including from Policy, Industry and Academia. It also showed the LRI impact on policies on intelligent testing and animal alternatives, complex environments and exposure, acceptance of new technologies – all crucial steps towards better innovation.

This event was organized in the framework of the European Year of Creativity & Innovation – LRI being one of the major voluntary initiatives of the chemical industry to support competitiveness and boost innovation.

You can listen to a conversation with Gernot Klotz (Cefic Research & Innovation Executive Director) and John Metselaar(Procter & Gamble Director Fabric Care, Low Income Markets, Member of Cefic Research & Innovation Programme Council).
