SETAC Europe 28th Annual Meeting
13 – 17 May 2018 in Rome, Italy
SETAC Europe 28th Annual meeting Rome is a 5-day event featuring a variety of training, networking and learning opportunities. Topics are 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, provide a unique networking opportunity and a chance for cross-collaboration long after the closing session.
The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is a not-for profit, global professional society established in 1979 to provide a forum for individuals and institutions engaged in education, research and development, ecological risk assessment and life-cycle assessment, chemical manufacture and distribution, management and regulation of natural resources, and the study, analysis, and solution of environmental problems. SETAC is an open and democratic organisation that operates in a broad social context, reflecting the needs of the environment and people. Application of sound science plays a key role in this process. Membership worldwide comprises about 5500 professionals in the field of chemistry, toxicology, biology, and ecology: atmospheric, health, and earth sciences; and environmental engineering.
ABOUT SETAC Europe
SETAC 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.
