ECETOC at a Glance

ECETOC provides a collaborative space for top scientists from  industry, academia and governments to develop and promote practical, trusted and sustainable solutions to scientific challenges which are valuable to industry, as well as to the regulatory community and society in general.

What we do

We SHAPE scientific knowledge by working with leading scientists from academia, governments and industry to answer crucial scientific questions about chemical safety and so develop practical applications to solve scientific challenges.

We EXPAND scientific knowledge by working with Cefic’s Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) to develop targeted scientific research that tackles both today’s and tomorrow’s chemistry challenges.

We COMMUNICATE scientific knowledge by providing scientific thought-leadership, creating a practical knowledge base that is shared freely on our website, alongside our chemical safety assessment tools.

Our values

Scientific excellence: We engage top scientists from industry, academia and governments.

Independence: We provide the collaborative space, freedom from commercial pressure and long-term project stability needed to ensure independent scientific research and technical development.

Transparency: We openly address potential conflicts of interest (in publications or internally) and make all our work and the scientific findings resulting from it available to the public.

Diversity: We are dedicated to building a diverse organisation and collaborative environment, with a shared commitment to scientific excellence.
