Workshop Report 27


Next steps:

1. It was agreed to perform a scientific evaluation on the application of the agreed concepts. ECETOC is looking into funding possibilities for this task.

2. A second meeting of the Scientific Expert panel will take place in Q4 2013 when the results of the scientific evaluation are available.

3. It was agreed to place any such initiative under the umbrella of an international organisation in order to demonstrate complete impartiality: the preferences were WHO/IPCS or OECD. European Science Foundation (ESF) and the National Academy of Sciences were discussed as possibilities for funding of the next meeting as well as for possible funding of the (to be developed) research programme.
