USEtox near-field/far-field (eco-)toxicity’ Virtual Summer School

June 7, 2021 - June 11, 2021

June 7 – June 11

4th official ‘USEtox near-field/far-field (eco-)toxicity’ Virtual Summer School | 7-11 June 2021 | Organized as PhD course by the USEtox International Center hosted at DTU Management | Draft program attached | Registration open now

Participants work on their own cases to characterize human and ecotoxicity impacts of chemical emissions and chemicals in consumer products, and will learn how to apply USEtox in life cycle assessment (LCA), chemical substitution and alternatives assessment (CAA), high-throughput risk screening (HTS), and chemical prioritization.

Course description

The USEtox summer school feeds into Europe’s Zero Pollution ambition as part of the European Green Deal as well as into various United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to minimizing human and environmental health impacts from hazardous chemicals. USEtox results are applied in various science and policy areas, including life cycle assessment (LCA), chemical substitution and alternatives assessment (CAA), risk assessment (RA), and high-throughput risk screening (HTS).

The USEtox summer school is suitable for PhD students, researchers, practitioners and professionals in companies and organizations working with toxicity characterization, chemicals management and environmental assessment. The summer school will focus on providing a practical overview of multimedia chemical fate modelling, near-field and far-field consumer and population exposure modelling, ecosystem and human health effects modelling, and comparative indicators for human-toxicological and ecotoxicological impact assessment, using the newest USEtox scientific consensus model.

Main course objective: learn how USEtox can be used in various applications, building on the latest scientific consensus recommendations under UNEP GLAM. Participants will have hands-on access to all course model files, data, documentation and reading materials. Case work: participants will work on their own case study from any relevant application field, using/implementing their specific substances and model adaptations of interest.
