New challenges to environmental quality are expected at a global scale for the next 30 years as a result of climate change, the depletion of natural resources and the World population growth. Within these three coordinates, the human pressure over the environment is undoubtedly subject to the evolution of the global trade, the economic growth of countries and regions, and population shifts from an increased urbanization and migrations. Environmental sciences must provide solutions to issues caused in this changing scenario by the global rearrangement of the agri-food chain, of the uses of lands and coastal ecosystems, and the innovation in the chemical industry. The risks and management of chemical pollution in soil, water and air, the sustainability of production, as well as the life cycle of products and processes and the effects on the ecosystem services should be determined in time.
SETAC (the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) Europe 2021 provides a forum where environmental professionals can exchange ideas and present their research for the development and use of multidisciplinary scientific principles and practices leading to sustainable environmental quality. The online programme will include pre-recorded platform presentations and posters which will be available on demand, as well as moderated live sessions to discuss the state of the art and challenges in every research field.Furthermore, every day will be opened with a high– level keynote presentationwhich will make you pore over several emerging topics in our community.
There are seven scientific tracks:
See the website for details of sessions within each track.
Abstract submission is open until 2 December, and registration opens in January 2021.
