Best chemical risk assessment professionals for maximum Ecosystem Services benefit

Project description

Early-stage researchers to train in advanced environmental risk assessment

Once based on simplified descriptive laboratory tests, environmental risk assessment now incorporates mechanistic, ecological and socioeconomic process information. This is making it more comprehensive, realistic and relevant. The EU-funded PRORISK project will create a platform for training a network of early-stage researchers in this field. As future experts, the researchers will be trained to address the challenges of the risk assessment paradigm shift. Specifically, the project will develop and integrate mechanistic understanding, in-depth analyses of chemical-biological interactions and exposure, and functioning of ecosystems. The goal will be to empower the researchers to develop new regulatory missions protecting ecosystem services.
