MODEL-EDC 2nd edition

Thursday, September 8, 2022
 
Format 

The EuroMarine-funded foresight workshop MODEL-EDC (2nd edition) will review the current state of the art in terms of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) threats, models and limitations.

It will bring together experts from different fields of eco-toxicology, endocrine-disruption and modelling to discuss current assays for evaluating and predicting the environmental risks of EDC pollutants, how useful they are for monitoring marine systems, current challenges and future directions.

This is a 2nd edition of the MODEL-EDC organized online by CCMAR in November 2021, and will now take place in Faro as a satellite workshop of the  30th CECE & 9th ISFE Conference. 

 

FREE ATTENDANCE (for CECE-ISFE participants or participants only of the workshop), sponsored by Euromarine.

NOTE: We will accept all 90 participants on a basis of first-come, first-served (with 40 seats reserved for students and early-career scientists) – we have finished the normal period to accept and confirm registrations. You can still register here but we advise to directly contact the main organizer Patricia Pinto by email (ppinto@ualg.pt) to confirm if your registration was accepted
