The 9th SETAC Europe Special Science Symposium will be organised in Hotel Marivaux, Brussels, Belgium. The event is planned as a two-day meeting to be conducted 4-5 December 2013.

Risk assessment and management in marine systems:
State of the art and the challenges ahead

The overall aim of this symposium is to facilitate the knowledge exchange between stakeholders from academia, industry and regulatory bodies, in order to enhance our understanding of the sources, fate and consequences of chemical contaminants and other stressors in the marine environment. This is critical for identifying comprehensive and consistent strategies for marine management.
