22–26 May 2022, Durham, N.C. USA
Nontarget Analysis for Environmental Assessment

The goal of this meeting is to move nontarget screening and its application forward in the context of environmental assessment by involving stakeholders from all sectors.
The meeting will have a mixed format with keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations, and breakout discussion and demonstration groups. The meeting will intensely cover nontarget screening approaches, from the analytical technology, to application in real-field studies and implementation in risk assessment.

The meeting will include three main topics:

  • Frontiers in nontarget screening: Instrumentation, data evaluation and application to monitoring the water environment
  • Identifying transformation products and metabolites formed in biological and technical systems
  • Tools to prioritize identification: Statistics, exposure indices, toxicity, fate modeling

ALEXS 2022 - Atlantic Exposome Summer School

IRSET, in collaboration with ANSES and the Institute for Advanced Biosciences (IAB, Grenoble) are pleased to announce that Atlantic Exposome Summer School ALEXS 2022 - the 6th edition of the European Doctoral College on Environment and Health (EDCEH). Devoted to the exposome concept, this 3-day event will feature a variety of training, networking and learning opportunities. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in emerging research and the latest methodologies in exposomics. Pioneer researchers in the field of exposomics involved in H2020 EU projects such as HELIX and ATHLETE projects or HBM4EU are scheduled to give plenary lectures. Other lectures will discuss a wide range of important topics including high-resolution mass spectrometry and 'omics' technologies, personal sensors, biomarkers, citizen sciences and statistical methodologies in epidemiology to better define and study the exposome. Workshops will be organised to discuss practical aspects of exposomics and will include hands-on learning opportunities.

14 June 2022, Berlin, Germany
LIFE APEX Final Workshop (hybrid event)

The workshop aims to present and discuss the novel results from the LIFE APEX project and to give a future perspective on the use of biomonitoring data of apex predators in hazard and risk assessment under REACH and other legislations. New data on the exposure of top predators from all over Europe to known pollutants and contaminants of emerging concern will be presented at the final conference of the LIFE APEX project. What is the relevance of these findings for environmental and chemical legislation and how can we use data from top predators for chemical management in the future? The morning session of the one-day meeting will present QA/QC measures for top predator samples, results of target and Non-Target Screening analyses and regulatory assessment of the data. In the afternoon, we plan to discuss how to further develop monitoring approaches for top predators with policy makers, regulators, research, industry, and non-governmental organizations. 

The workshop will be held on June 14 from 09:30-16:00 as a hybrid event with approximately 50 seats for on-site participation and online video access (no access restrictions).

More information on registration will follow shortly.
