With the objective of recognising young scientists, ECETOC has been active in the provision of an annual Science Award to outstanding works of science since 2003.
The 1st Science Award was accorded on the occasion of its ECETOC‘s 25th Anniversary to recognise the achievements of three promising European investigators in the fields of science relevant to its mission of supporting the safe manufacturing and use of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and biomaterials through good science. Since then the format of the Award may have varied, however the objectives have remained the same.
2016 Science Awards
The ECETOC Best Platform Award honours the early career scientist with the best platform presentation at the SETAC Europe Annual Meeting. The award winner is invited to the Annual Meeting.
The Best Platform Presentation at SETAC Europe, Nantes 2016, went to Yuan Pan, of the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, for her presentation on “Using the ecosystem services framework to link scientific research and policy-making: a case study of Lake Tai, China”
