5th EU-ToxRisk General Assembly Meeting & 2nd Industry Stakeholder Meeting in February 2019

The european project EU-ToxRisk: "an integrated european 'flagship' program driving mechanism-based toxicity testing and risk assessment for the 21st century" is a H2020 supported collaborative project for the period 2016-2021 in which academia joins forces with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), large industry, contract research organisations (CROs) and regulatory bodies to achieve a paradigm shift in toxicology towards a more efficient and animal-free chemical safety assessment. The GRIB takes part of this project as coordinator of WP4.

From 12-14 Feb. 2019, the EU-ToxRisk project hold its 5th General Assembly (GA) meeting, together with its 2nd Industry Stakeholders Meeting. This year's edition also took place in Egmond aan Zee, Netherlands.

Day-1 focused on the learnings from the EU-ToxRisk Phase-1 Case Studies and the conceptual frameworks of the most recent Phase-2 Case Studies. Day-2 was devoted to scientific highlights from EU-ToxRisk and discussions on the overall project progress. The last event day was restricted to EU-ToxRisk project members and dedicated to various work sessions and group discussions.

Altogether, some 120 people - including project members, advisory board members and external industry stakeholders - attended the event which was very successfull with interesting presentations, fruitful discussions, and instructive poster sessions.
