SETAC Europe 24th Annual Meeting

Science across borders, boundaries and bridges

Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry

SETAC invites you to attend the SETAC Europe 24th Annual Meeting 11-15 May 2014 in Basel, Switzerland. The conference will host nine environmental toxicology and chemistry tracks with sixty regular sessions. In addition, you can look forward to five special sessions, two of which explicitly feature Swiss perspectives. We are delighted to introduce the first-ever SETAC Science Slam where six finalists will communicate their science live on stage in a new and unique way.

In order to benefit from technological innovation by securing sustainable solutions and responding to global change while protecting our environment, there is a need to build bridges, overcome borders and connect boundaries between science and policy. SETAC members strive to provide the knowledge base for advancing the protection of environmental resources, engaging in platforms for the exchange of inter- and trans-disciplinary ideas and approaches.

The conference will focus on the most recent advances in environmental sciences and will provide a platform for how to implement this knowledge to improve environmental risk assessment and shape policies - from current viewpoints to future needs.
