In the development and production of chemicals, sustainability plays an increasingly important role. But how sustainable is the work we perform daily in our laboratories on the toxicity testing of these substances? And how can you determine and reduce the footprint of your research? The section risk assessment invites you to our annual spring symposium in which we will explore these questions with three speakers from this interesting new field.
