Environmental risk assessment

The assessment of risks from exposure of biosystems against chemicals or other products of anthropogenic origin requires consideration of adverse effects. We work on advancing protocols and procedures for such effect assessments, currently for nanoparticles, hydraulic fracturing, mixture assessment and comparative assessments. Moreover, we facilitate stakeholder communication and serve as honest broker to bridge developments in science and chemicals regulation.
