NOW OPEN: Call for scientific proposals to the 2020 EUROTOX Congress

On behalf of the Scientific Programme Committee (SCP) I invite you to submit your proposal for the EUROTOX 2020 Congress that will be held in Copenhagen, September 6-9, 2020. 

This year’s theme is “Toxicology of the next generation – combined efforts in quest of safer chemicals and medicines”. It reflects our desire to address topics dealing with advances in science, emerging technologies, as well as next generation toxicology testing platforms to ensure innovative ways to evaluate the safety of pharmaceuticals, chemicals and materials. Submissions in line with this theme are strongly encouraged. 

We urge all Individual Members, Member Societies, Speciality Sections, SubCommittees and Corporate Members, as well as scientific and industry partners to contribute. Only a common united effort will guarantee a high quality and diverse programme and keep our annual congress a reference point for the toxicologists not only in Europe but also internationally. 

We also urge you to support and encourage young scientists in your sessions since taking part in symposia and workshops is still an important activity to help develop their scientific and professional skills. 

Please prepare and submit your proposals following the guidelines and official form both found in our website. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2019.

Thanks for your continuous support!
Felix Carvalho

Help us recognise scientific excellence

Support the recognition of outstanding professionals in toxicology by nominating candidates for these two awards. Contact your national societies (the list is found in our website) to nominate professionals that you believe have made scientific contributions and should be recognised for their professional excellence in toxicology. 

2019 EUROTOX MERIT AWARD recognising professionals with a distinguished career in European toxicology
The award recipient will be invited to the annual congress and presented with the award during the opening ceremony.
