EUROTOX aims to foster toxicology, both scientifically and educationally, in all countries of Europe. To this, EUROTOX organises an annual scientific congress, workshops, and postgraduate training courses.
EUROTOX is actively harmonising toxicology education and training, having established the European Register of Toxicologists in 1994.
Furthermore EUROTOX honours annually a distinguished European toxicologist by its Merit Award. Young toxicologists are encouraged by the annual Young Scientist Award, which is awarded every year to the best presentation at the EUROTOX Congress.
To honour Professor Bo Holmstedt, the Bo Holmstedt Memorial Fund (BHMF), in collaboration with EUROTOX, has established the Bo Holmstedt Memorial Lecture to be presented to an outstanding European Toxicologist at the EUROTOX Annual Congress meeting. The foundation is also supporting the Paracelcus symposium at the annual meeting. Bo Holmstedt's great interest in the teaching of toxicology and supported research in developing countries, a travelling lecture fellowship has also been established to allow a toxicologist from a developing country to spent some time in a European laboratory or regulatory agency.
As collaborating partner supporting the dissemination of TRISK, the European Toxicology Risk Assessment Training Programme EUROTOX is pleased to sustain the project by presenting the results achieved.
