wca are long standing partners of SETAC Europe. As in previous years, we have a major presence at the 31st Annual SETAC Europe Meeting (Virtual Conference). The meeting starts on 3rd May and runs through until the 6th, with the presentations available via the meeting hub from the 28th April. wca have a combination of the platform presentations and posters, and are involved in chairing two sessions; a full breakdown of wca’s involvement is detailed below.

wca will also have an exhibition booth at the Welcome Reception on Monday (17:20 – 18:50 CEST) (the booth may also be available at other times during the programme – please check the schedule). We look forward to discussing our work and our presentations with you then, or during the live discussion sessions

Sessions chaired:

3.09 - Importance of Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability in Hazard Assessment, Risk Assessment and Regulation of Metals in Multi-Stressor Environmental Conditions. Adam Peters will be chairing this session with Raewyn Town (University of Antwerp), Stephen Lofts (CEH) and Chris Cooper (IZA), with the live discussion session from 13:15 – 14:15 CEST on 3rd May

4.14 Pharmaceuticals in the Environment - a Global Challenge. Dean Leverett will be chairing the session with Gerd Maack (German Environment Agency), Laura Carter (University of Leeds) and Brett Sallach (University of York), with the live discussion session on the 6th May from 16:20 – 17:20 CEST.
