Friday, 02 August 2019

Funding available for research on specific areas in the scientific assessment of chemicals’ safety.

The Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) programme of the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) advances the scientific assessment of chemicals’ safety and improves our understanding of the potential health and environmental risks by fostering innovative research in three priority areas.

CEFIC-LRI has launched a number of Requests for Proposals to carry out research in the following areas:
•LRI-B22: Human Exposure Assessment Framework for Complex Substances.
•LRI-B23: Optimizing the benefit of REACH worker exposure assessments: ensuring meaningful health risk communication.
•LRI-C8: Assessing the repeatability of metabolomics within a regulatory context through a multi-laboratory ring-trial.
•LRI-ECO51: Integrating the Fish Embryo Test into the Weight of Evidence to Inform Acute Fish Toxicity.
•LRI-ECO52: Expanding the conceptual principles and applicability domain of persistence screening and prioritization frameworks, including single constituents, polymers, and UVCBs.
•LRI-ECO53: Breakthrough developments in the characterisation of Long-Range Transport of chemicals.
•LRI-EMSG60: Are changes in human reproduction a major factor in explaining the increases in 14 diseases and health parameters thought to be related to the endocrine system?

The total budget for this round of calls is €2.49 million.

Proposals may be submitted by any European or non-European, for-profit or non-profit organisation, public or private entities, such as universities, colleges, laboratories, and contract research organisations; units of national and local governments with the necessary laboratory facilities; and research cooperatives. Collaborations between research institutions are encouraged.

The deadline for applications is 1 September 2019.
