2016 Human Health and Exposure Science Review Meeting

01-02 February 2016, Pullman Hotel Brussels Midi, Brussels, Belgium


From 2014, ECETOC now holds Biennial Human Health Science Scoping Meetings to consult with its membership and stakeholders on topical science issues to be included in the ECETOC Human Health Science Programme.

In February 2014 the first Human Health Science Scoping Meeting identified 12 priority themes for ECETOC and Cefic LRI consideration. During this 2016 Review Meeting, participants will hear about progress and achievements since 2014. They will also develop new recommendations for future work through brainstorm sessions. The regulatory community and key chemical sectors will give their views during the meeting to ensure that recommendations are both relevant and impactful.

Recommendations from the Human Health Science Scoping Meetings are taken into account by the ECETOC Scientific Committee and Cefic LRI when deciding their respective future scientific work programmes.


This 2 day meeting will be structured as follows:

Day 1:     Review/Grounding Exercise – A series of talks and discussion to ensure everyone starts with the same level of knowledge. Inform about progress since the 2014 Human Health Scoping Meeting.

Day 2:     Idea Generation and Consolidation – using the ‘world café’ format where 4 themes are addressed. Participant’s breakout into 4 separate groups. Each group spends 45 minutes addressing each theme in turn. Ideas are captured, bundled into Topics and prioritised.
