Piacenza, Italy. 18th January 2015.
Aeiforia srl., a spin-off company of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, in cooperation with Expedia MRCC, is organising a workshop focusing on chemical exposure assessment. In particular the results of two EU-funded projects will be presented: 4FUN and Love-to-Hate. 4FUN aimed at delivering a standardized tool for human exposure assessment to chemicals, named MERLIN-Expo, which will be presented during the workshop. Love-to-Hate is expected to shed light into the complex interactions between pesticides and soil microbes and the parameters controlling which way the balance will go: toxicity or adaptation. The objective is to define a new framework of well-established experimental protocols and a toolbox of standardized and advanced methods for soil microbial toxicity assessment of pesticides. The final aim is to set the scene for the revision of the current regulatory framework.
