Input to specific projects and reports

  • 6th Framework Programme Co-ordination Action Project “Norman”
    Participation in Advisory Board on behalf of ECETOC by Stuart Marshall (Unilever)
  • 7th Framework Programme Co-ordination Action Project “EUROECOTOX”
    The EUROECOTOX project EU-FP7 funding finished at the end of 2012 but the feasibility and strategic importance of continuing the EUROECOTOX network was discussed at the final project meeting in Brno (Czech Republic). It was decided that from December 2012 the network would be managed by Dr Malyka Galay Burgos of ECETOC, one of the EUROECOTOX partners, since ECETOC has a proven track record in supporting the use of alternatives to animals for environmental assessments.
