SETAC Rome is a 5-day event featuring a variety of training, networking and learning opportunities. You cannot miss this event if you are interested in emerging research, regulatory developments and the latest methodologies in environmental toxicology and chemistry.

Between 2,000 and 2,500 scientists, assessors, regulators and managers from academia, business and government, representing an average of 60 countries, provides a unique networking opportunity and a chance for cross-collaboration long after the closing session.

ETAC Europe is one of five Geographic Units (GU) of the global Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), established to promote and undertake activities of SETAC in Europe, and to support activities of SETAC in the Middle East and Russia. As a Geographic Unit we share the mission of SETAC.

SETAC Europe is dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of stressors, chemicals, and technology on the environment. The Society also provides an open forum for scientists and institutions engaged in the study of environmental problems, management and regulation of natural resources, education, research and development, and manufacturing. SETAC Europe is incorporated in Belgium as a not-for-profit organisation. The society is governed according its articles of association and by-laws. SETAC Europe maintains its administrative office in Brussels, Belgium.

The primary goals of SETAC Europe are:

  • To support the development of principles and practices for protection, enhancement and management of sustainable environmental quality and ecosystem integrity;
  • To encourage interactions among environmental scientists and disseminate information on environmental toxicology and chemistry; and
  • To provide a forum for communication among professionals in government, business, academia, and other segments of the environmental science community and for the protection and welfare of the general public.

Abstracts are being accepted until 29th November 2017.
