‘Painting the future animal-free safety assessment of chemical ingredients: Achievements of SEURAT-1’
SEURAT is a European research initiative with the long-term goal of achieving ‘Safety Evaluation Ultimately Replacing Animal Testing’. In the first phase of the SEURAT initiative, the European Commission’s FP7 HEALTH programme and the European Cosmetics Association (COLIPA) are supporting six research projects exploring solutions for the replacement of in vivo testing in human safety assessment.
The SEURAT-1 symposium will report on the achievements of the initiative and explore other recent achievements and their impact in the field of alternative testing strategies. High-level presentations will showcase SEURAT-1 success stories in a practical and accessible manner and an open exhibition will then allow for deeper discussions. Other related on-going and future initiatives from the EU and the US will also showcase progress in the field and there will be opportunities for networking.
