Our researcher, Susana Loureiro (CESAM/DBIO), served as the co-chair of the Scientific Committee of one of the largest global conferences in the field of Ecotoxicology and Environmental Chemistry.
The 33rd annual edition of SETAC Europe was organized by the non-profit association, Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), and took place from April 30th to May 4th in the city of Dublin, Ireland.
Under the global theme of “Environmental Decision Making Based on Data,” the committee, co-chaired by Iseult Lynch (researcher at the University of Birmingham) and Susana Loureiro, was responsible for preparing the entire scientific program of the conference. Highlighting the inherent level of difficulty associated with this task, Mirco Bunshuch, President of SETAC Europe, emphasized that over the course of five days, this scientific gathering in Dublin brought together 110 parallel sessions, 1,774 posters, 78 virtual presentations, and a total of 2,379 speakers.
Among these speakers, many CESAM researchers presented their work and findings alongside colleagues from around the world.
The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is a professional organization “composed of approximately 5,000 individuals and institutions in over 90 countries dedicated to the study, analysis, and resolution of environmental problems, natural resource management and regulation, research and development, and environmental education.”
