Short courses

On Sunday 12 May 2013, a range of half- and full-day short courses are scheduled prior to the opening of the congress. Registration is open to all participants to the Annual Meeting.

The purpose of short courses at SETAC Annual Meetings is to provide educational opportunities to the membership and our guests. Teaching a short course also provides an excellent opportunity for getting to know (young) people working in the same field of interest and thus forming networks.

Short course proposals could be submitted until 30 November 2012. Feel free to contact SETAC if you have any questions on short courses.

Following short courses (with leading instructors) will be available at the SETAC Europe 23rd Annual Meeting:

  1. Risk Assessment Training and Experience (RATE): Basic understanding and application of risk assessments

We strongly encourage early registration for short courses in order to avoid disappointment, as 1) the number of registrations for some courses are limited and 2) the final decision on whether the short course will be programmed at the meeting will depend on the number of registrations received on 15 March. If you have not registered by that date, we might need to cancel the course you are interested in, due to lack of registrations.

Would you have any questions on short courses, please contact SETAC.
