Social Event: Tour to Idrija
Wednesday, September 13, 2023
15h30 – 19h30
Idrija is a small town located 60 km west of Ljubljana and famous for the discovery of mercury in 1493. Part of the old mine can still be visited today, and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage “Historic Mercury Extraction Sites: Almadén and Idrija”. The bus tour will depart from the congress venue, and will provide guidance on the history of Idrija and the impact of its residents on medicine, toxicology, and other natural sciences by prof. Dr. Zvonka Zupanič-Slavec, Professor of History of Medicine. More information will be posted on the congress website or onsite.
In Search of Best Methods
PEPPER, the Public-private platform for the validation of endocrine disruptors characterization methods, is looking for methods to be validated.
PEPPER focuses on test methods that characterise endocrine disrupters substances. Methods allowing the identification of an endocrine mode of action (MoA), an endocrine-related adverse outcome (AO), or linking a MoA to an AO are in the scope of PEPPER.
Submission deadline is August 15, 2023.

Training in Advanced Toxicology
EUROTOX is pleased to support this exciting opportunity for early career scientists in countries offering limited courses in advanced toxicology: RISK ASSESSMENT IN REGULATORY TOXICOLOGY – CONTEMPORARY METHODOLOGY, scheduled October 16-20, 2023, in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The course is organized by the Bulgarian Toxicological Society with the financial support of EUROTOX and UTOX and the cooperation of the National Centre for Public Health and Analysis and Technical University, Sofia.
The course will provide knowledge and understanding of approaches for toxicological risk assessment in regulatory processes for different categories of chemicals in the light of new alternative approaches in toxicology, useful for individuals who work with problems related to exposure to various chemical substances from various sources – environmental and working environment, food, cosmetics, as well as those who work in regulatory toxicology.
