CEFIC-LRI LAUNCHES ITS 2020 CALL FOR PROPOSALS IN CHEMICAL RISK ASSESSMENT AND TOXICITY
The Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) programme of the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) is now accepting grant applications to carry out research in the following areas:
- LRI AIMT11: Expansion of A Regulatory Accepted In Vitro Testing Battery for Developmental Neurotoxicity (DNT) Evaluation
- LRI C9: Mining the developmental toxicity biomarker genome in the zebrafish embryo test
- LRI ECO54: Next generation risk assessment methods for substances associated with mobility concerns
- LRI ECO55: Assessing the Impact of Sample Collection on Microbial Population and Validity Criteria in the OECD 309 Surface Water Mineralisation Test
The deadline for application is August 31, 2020.
Project specifications, budget details and application forms can be found here. Only proposals that fit the project specifications and are submitted in the official LRI application form will be considered.

CEFIC-LRI AWARD – € 100.000 Award for Ecotoxicology ResearchIn 2020 there will not be an LRI Award competition. Please come back and have a look for new information for 2021.
The European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic), in conjunction with the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), the Association of European Toxicologists and European Societies of Toxicology (EUROTOX), and the International Society of Exposure Sciences (ISES), is offering a €100.000 award to support promising new research in the field of environmental toxicology. “Non-extractable residues (NERs) or strongly absorbed substances in environmental risk assessment” was the topic of the Cefic-LRI Innovative Science Award in 2019.
European-based scientists with less than ten years post-doctoral experience. Active involvement in interdisciplinary research, current academic track record, and access to appropriate networks will be considered in the selection. There is no age limit for applicants. Previous Award winners are not eligible to apply.
