BEMS/DEMS Annual Meeting, 29th November 2018, Brussels
17 July 2018
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 2018 joint meeting of the Belgian and Dutch Environmental Mutagen Society.
Communicating toxicology: What’s the risk?
Thursday November 29, 2018
Vlaams-Europees Verbindingsagentschap, Kortenberglaan 71, Brussels
Scientists and risk assessors generate valid and robust data, which should allow risk managers and policy makers to take measures to ensure safe use of medicines, chemicals, cosmetics and food ingredients. However, we should recognise that humans are hardwired to feel first and think second, so how biased are our recommendations, and, even more importantly, how do we get our message across.
During this symposium, keynote lectures will address scientific and regulatory issues in the field of GMO’s, pharmaceutical drugs, cosmetics and plant protection products. During a workshop, the participants can experience and learn how media works and highlight the hazards, exposure, risks, harm-benefit balances and residual uncertainties.
Please find additional information and the program for the symposium in the attachments.
Registration for the meeting is now open.
We are looking forward to see you in Brussels!
On behalf of the Belgian and Dutch Environmental Mutagen Societies,
Lode Godderis, BEMS Chair
Giel Hendriks, DEMS Chair
