Toxicology for Non-Toxicologists 14 March 2019

Gain an understanding of the fundamentals of toxicology

This one-day introductory training course presented by expert toxicology trainer Laura Robinson offers a unique opportunity to ground yourself in toxicological terms and concepts – an increasingly valuable knowledge asset to have in working in the global regulatory compliance scene. It covers the principles of toxicology together with toxicological endpoints and an explanation of common terminology  (including LD50, NOAEL, LOAEL, etc) and will also look at the currently available testing strategies (including alternative methods) within toxicology.

Exercises will be set throughout the day to enable participants to put their new-found knowledge into practice.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Risk, hazard and exposure;
  • The dose-response concept;
  • Acute and chronic toxicity;
  • Local effects (irritation and corrosion);
  • Systemic effects (target organ effects, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, reproductive toxicity, and developmental effects);
  • Chemical allergy (allergic contact dermatitis and respiratory sensitisers);
  • Toxicokinetics;
  • Human health risk assessment; and
  • Assessment of toxicological effects.

This research policy workshop will focus on how to move forward the innovation chain in the EU for bioenergy, advanced biofuels and renewable fuels, contributing to the clean energy transformation in energy and transport, in line with the Strategic Development Goals and the EU Communication “Clean Planet for All”. For this purpose, the workshop will identify the research and innovation needs, the strategy and the roadmap for bioenergy, biofuels and renewable fuels to make the European industrial energy and transport sectors economically and environmentally sustainable, secure and competitive in the global markets. The agenda will focus on the value chains of advanced biofuels, renewable fuels, intermediate bioenergy carriers and biomass-based cogeneration of heat and power. The entire innovation sequence will be discussed, from breakthrough technologies to applied research and demonstration, pre-commercial scale financing and market up-take support measures. Results from the entire portfolio of around 60 projects supported under the European Union’s Framework Programme Horizon 2020 – Secure, clean and efficient energy challenge will feed into the discussion. The views of the engaged EU Member States and of research and industrial stakeholders will be an important additional contribution, to identify non-technological support pathways through new tools, research concepts, the mobilization of national actions, private engagement and financing mechanisms. The workshop will then report on the progress of the innovation chains, the effectiveness of pushing innovative solutions into the market and their broader penetration into the energy and transport mix. Policy recommendations based on project results, the Member States’ interests and plans, as well as the views of the stakeholders, will also be collected and reported.
