Aquatic Effect Assessment of Plant Protection Products – Advanced Course

2019-07-16T11:14:48+00:00Categories: 2019-Mar, 2020, Specialised course|

Content

In this course we focus on EFSA guidance about aquatic effect assessment and the linking of exposure to effects, including consistency of the tiered approach, issues in each of the tiers, geomean and weight-of-evidenceapproach, species sensitivity distributions, modified exposure tests, micro- and mesocosm studies, realistic worse-case exposure profiles, statistical power, recovery option and models (TK-TD, population models) and a outlook on Landscape Level Risk Assessment. This course is an advanced course and handles aquatic effect assessment at the applied level. We ask at least a Bachelor degree or similar level in natural sciences and in-depth experience with the Tiered approach for effects on the aquatic ecosystem.

Target audience

This course aims at professionals using guidance for the authorization of plant protection products:

  • Regulators working for admission authorities who apply the guidance for their dossier evaluations
  • Consultants and business representatives working for industry and or consulting agencies who apply the guidance for dossiers (evaluation, preparation and submission)
  • Scientists performing lower and higher tier research (experimental and modelling), applying the latest and newest available guidance

Ecotoxicology of Amphibians and Reptiles: From Theory to Practice

2019-07-16T11:46:47+00:00Categories: 06 Organism-level ecotoxicology, 2019, 2019-Jun, Specialised course|

Content

The course provides an updated review and synthesis of the current state of ecotoxicology of contaminants and other global stressors (e.g. climate change) in amphibians and reptiles. It will also give an overview on different methodologies used to collect animals in the field, to culture them in the laboratory, and to generate ecotoxicological data. All the information will be complemented with the presentation of national and international case studies.

The course is targeted to scientists, post-graduation students (PhD and MSc) with a background in Biology, Natural and Environmental Sciences, Environmental Engineering, or related fields, members of consulting companies and of private and public institutions involved in environmental management.
