EURION ANNUAL MEETING

20th - 21st January, 2022

9:00 - 17:00 (CET)

About the Event

Join the EURION virtual Annual meeting for an update on the latest advances in EURION’s research to improve the identification of endocrine disruptors and joint activities within the cluster. The morning (9:00-12:15) of the first day will be open for all scientists and stakeholders who want to learn more about the advances of the EURION cluster and its projects in developing new testing and screening methods for identifying endocrine disruptors. The rest of the programme will be open for EURION members only to discuss joint activities and project results, and thereby facilitate cross-project collaboration and maximise synergies.


About EURION

EURION, the European Cluster to Improve Identification of Endocrine Disruptors (EDs), consists of eight H2020 research projects focusing on the development of new ED test methods targeting relevant endpoints that are not sufficiently covered by current regulatory tests (https://eurion-cluster.eu/).
