The “JRC Summer School on Non-Animal Approaches in Science: Challenges and Future Directions" intends to share knowledg
e and experience on the latest non-animal approaches used in research and testing including in vitro methods and computational modelling.
It is tailored for post-graduate students (PhD/Master) and young scientists, active in fields related to toxicology, biomedical research, alternative methods, exposure science, or risk assessment. And is FREE OF CHARGE.
Applications are now open until 15 January 2019.
