Accelerating progress in the Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of animal testing through better knowledge sharing

2 febrero 2016


Dear Colleague,

EURL ECVAM would like to invite you to participate in the EU public survey to identify all types of knowledge sources that might be relevant to Replace, Reduce or Refine (the ‘3Rs’) the use of animals for scientific purposes, to understand how such knowledge is currently disseminated and to highlight what could be done to fill knowledge gaps and enhance knowledge sharing.

As follow-up from the Commission’s response to the European Citizens’ Initiative “Stop Vivisection!”, the Commission is assessing opportunities to enhance knowledge sharing among all relevant parties to accelerate progress in the 3Rs. The aim of this survey is to draw on your personal experience of knowledge exchange and to try to identify where this is working well and where it can be enhanced.

Your contribution will be extremely valuable in this exercise. We would also be very grateful if you could share this survey with your own network of collaborators in order that we may reach as many individual knowledge sources as possible. You may wish to read about the survey in the news item published today on the JRC Science Hub.

The results of this survey will provide valuable input for a comprehensive study currently being undertaken by the Commission, the results of which will be made available by the end of 2016.

The survey will remain open until Friday the 11th of March 2016.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact

Kind regards,

Systems Toxicology Unit

Actividades de la RITSQ (2008-2016)

13 enero 2016

La Red Iberoamericana de Toxicología y Seguridad Química, se puso en marcha con la colaboración de la Dra. Silvia Barros, de la Universidad de Sao Paulo, con la que a partir de la celebración del IUTOX 2004 en Tampere (Finlandia) acordamos montar una red de colaboración y lo materializamos mediante la creación de la RITSQ. En 2006 se mantuvo la reunión promotora, durante la celebración en Santiago de Chile del Congreso de ALATOX, el 26 de agosto. La I Reunión de la Red Iberoamericana de Toxicología y Seguridad Química se celebró durante el ICTXI 2007 (Montréal, Canadá), en julio de 2007. El 19 de marzo de 2008 creamos la página web de la RITSQ, en la que desde entonces hemos anunciado y promocionado 140 Congresos y Reuniones y 78 Máster y Cursos. Además, se ha dado difusión a las novedades legislativas en materia de sustancias químicas y mezclas, así como asuntos relacionados con los métodos alternativos a la experimentación animal.



A lo lo largo de este tiempo hemos recibido un total de 76.360 visitas. Desde la I Reunión de la RITSQ se han presentado 76 carteles en diferentes congresos, reuniones y conferencias, los cuales se pueden ver agrupados por años desde 2008 a 2015. En la siguiente tabla se resume la actividad realizada dentro de la RITSQ en estos años:

Año Congresos anunciados Carteles presentados Visitas recibidas
2015 14 8 76.340
2014 19 9 68.128
2013 13 8 54.100
2012 24 13 49.074
2011 21 14 35.531

2009 16 3 12.767
2008 16 1 5.395*
2007 7 5  
2006 2 1  

La RITSQ difunde y promociona los cursos y Máster que se realizan por Sociedades y Entidades tanto en Iberoamérica como en España, por lo que agradecemos el envío de carteles y programas.

SETAC Europe 26th Annual Meeting

9 diciembre 2015

SETAC Europe 2016


It is a great pleasure to invite you to the SETAC Europe 26th Annual Meeting, which will be held in Nantes, France, from 22-26 May 2016. Mark your agenda and save the date!

Nantes is one of the biggest cities of the French Atlantic coast at only two hours travel from Paris.

Environmental contaminants ignore boundaries and ecosystem limits. Under the general theme Environmental contaminants from land to sea: continuities and interface in environmental toxicology and chemistry, experts from academia, government and industry will share the most recent advanced knowledge in environmental sciences in order to improve chemical risk assessment and support current and future policies. Among the keynotes approached, Plastic waste in the aquatic environments, Fate and effect of cosmetics and personal care products – Regulatory perspectives, and Climate change and environmental contamination by chemicals: do they combine to modulate ecological and health effects? will put frames of debates of international interests.

We warmly welcome you to Nantes, in the Loire estuary, where history meets modernity. In this inventive and daring city, you will appreciate art deco style, cruises on the River Erdre, traditional music, and, of course, delicious French gourmet food and regional wines. Being the birthplace of Jules Verne, Nantes has kept the inspiration of the famous novelist to surprise visitors. Nantes is also an appropriate starting point to discover the Loire valley, with some of the finest royal castles and well-known vineyards, the sea shore with fishermen and salters villages, the Mont Saint Michel and beautiful long beaches.

We promise you an exciting scientific programme, surprising entertainment and great social events in a truly French atmosphere.

Welcome to France, rendez-vous in Nantes!
