Cefic LRI Grant Openings 2010

25 julio 2010

Invitation for Grant Applications

The Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) is one of the major voluntary initiatives of the European chemical industry to support its competitiveness and innovation potential. LRI aims to identify and fill gaps in our understanding of the hazards posed by chemicals and to improve the methods available for assessing the associated risks.

LRI sponsors high-quality research, published in peer-reviewed journals, and seeks to provide sound scientific advice on which industry and regulatory bodies will draw to respond more quickly and accurately to the public’s concerns.

In the context of its LRI programme, the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) is accepting grant applications to carry out research in the following areas:

  • B8 – Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC) for inhalation exposure
  • EMSG55 – Combined effects of natural and synthetic endocrine active chemicals
  • EMSG56 – Combined low dose exposure to endocrine active chemicals
  • ECO17 – Evaluation of test methods for measuring toxicity to sediment organisms
  • AIMT2 – Toxicogenomics as mechanistic readouts from in vitro studies

Deadline: 31 August 2010

Project specifications, budget details and application forms can be found on the Cefic LRI website. 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, Cefic LRI Manager at

3rd International Symposium on Trace Elements and Health

7 junio 2010

Dear colleagues:

On behalf of the Organising Committee it is with great pleasure I invite you to attend the 3rd International Symposium on Trace Elements and Health to be held in Murcia, Spain, 24-27 May, 2011.

The aim of this interdisciplinary meeting is to gather experts with different background to discuss all aspects of trace elements in relation to soil, crop production, animal husbandry, food, nutrition and human health as one related subject. The diet is the main source of trace elements, therefore producing nutritious and safe foods sufficiently and sustainably is the ultimate goal of modern agriculture. At the same time, trace elements are present in feeds, either as contaminants or as additives aimed at improving animal health or food properties. However, a closer coordination is needed between the nutrition and toxicology communities in setting acceptable ranges of intake for trace elements, considering its bioavailability in foods and genetic and individual differences of the targeted population.

3rd International Symposium on Trace Elements and Health

This meeting follows two previous ones, organised in Hangzhou, China (2004) and Helsinki, Finland (2007). Like the two previous meetings in this series, the symposium aims at being a suitable forum for new ideas and experiences to be exchanged among researchers working on trace elements in agroecosystems, animal and human health.

We do hope that you will have a fruitful meeting and a very pleasant stay in Murcia, a city where you will find everything including sunny weather, wonderful beaches, high quality gastronomy, Roman and Arabian historical ruins, charming people…

With kind regards,

Carmen Martínez Graciá
Symposium Chair
