The “JRC Summer School on Alternative Approaches for Risk assessment" intends to promote the use of alternative methods within chemical risk assessment. It will be tailored for post-graduate students (PhD/Master) and young scientists, with the aim to give insight into principles and methodologies of human health and environmental risk assessment from a scientific, regulatory, and industrial perspective focusing on alternative (non-animal) methods.
The workshop consists of several sessions, industry organized Technical workshops and student sessions. The workshop will provide you with the up-to-date methodology and their scientific and regulatory relevance in key areas of toxicology and disease models.

The implementation of severity classification of procedures, both prospectively and retrospectively, is on one hand a big challenge in animal studies in that it entails legal and ethical implications. On the other hand, it is an important and useful tool for properly evaluating research projects with regards to their prospective severity classification, to implement the least constraining procedures and to keep the level of severity of procedures the lowest possible. It also helps to improve communication with the public providing a more detailed picture of animal experimentation by differentiating procedures according to retrospective/actual severity.
