Workshops and Conferences
LRI co-sponsors workshops and conferences with scientific societies, international organizations, and governmental agencies that are designed to focus on timely issues of mutual interest to these groups and to policy makers. The primary goals are to foster interactions among researchers and stakeholders, to stimulate discussions that can improve the scientific basis for policy-making and to support consensus building that can advance the risk assessment process.
Recent Workshop Reports
Reports are available from the workshops that LRI and its International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) partners organize to foster interactions among researchers and stakeholders, stimulate discussions that can improve the scientific basis for policy-making and support consensus building to advance the risk assessment process.
