Only proposals that fit the project specifications and are submitted in the official LRI application form will be considered.For further details, please contact Dr. Bruno Hubesch, LRI Programme Consultant, at firstname.lastname@example.org or the LRI Secretariat at email@example.com. The Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) programme is a major voluntary initiative of the European chemical industry to support the long-term sustainability of its sector and European society. Through the programme we hope to identify the hazards posed by chemicals and improve the methods available for assessing the associated risks. The LRI sponsors high-quality research of a standard publishable in a reputable peer-reviewed journal, and seeks to provide sound scientific advice on which industry and regulatory bodies can draw-on to respond quickly and accurately to the public’s concerns.
