Research needs for protecting human health and the environment - an EU agencies' perspective

Online | 18/06/2024 | 11:00 - 13:00

*All times are Helsinki time (EEST, GMT+3).

Join our webinar where experts from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), European Environment Agency (EEA), and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) provide the scientific community with crucial updates on their research needs.

The agencies take a deeper look into the regulatory framework, highlight current challenges, and illustrate how scientific research projects, particularly those under the Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC), could contribute to bridging vital knowledge gaps.

Who should attend

This webinar is designed for researchers in the fields of public health, environmental sciences and protection, chemical safety and food safety and nutrition who are interested in the latest developments in EU regulatory science and opportunities for research collaboration. While the topics discussed in the webinar are tailored to the scope of the PARC consortium, all researchers with an interest in the abovementioned fields are encouraged to participate.

What you will gain

You will get insights into the latest research priorities and challenges, particularly in regulatory science, identified by the EU agencies, enhancing their understanding of where their work can have the most impact.

The discussion will include ECHA's recently updated scientific research needs, first published in June 2023. Although not exhaustive, this list is intended to inform and inspire ongoing and future research initiatives within the science community, with a focus on regulatory science, closely linked to the PARC project. EEA and EFSA will offer similar updates of their research and regulatory needs.
