One Environment. One Health. Sustainable Societies.

The SETAC Europe Annual Meeting in 2019 in Helsinki will be the number one meeting place where scientists from various disciplines and sectors (Academia, Business, Government and NGOs) will find new opportunities to present, to debate and disseminate the most recent scientific knowledge, developments and applications for:

  • Reducing and regulating the use of chemicals in the environment,
  • Remediating soil, air and water pollution,
  • Proposing the use of more sustainable chemicals.

Many areas in the world are affected by pollution due to long-range transport of contaminants causing health hazards to local ecosystems, including indigenous human populations of the north. This underlines the fact that chemical pollution and its effects are indeed global, while new approaches for the management and counteractions have to be tailored for the specific environments in question.

The backbone of this meeting is the recognition that environmental protection plays an important role in public health, and to contribute to our global goal of creating sustainable future societies. The scientific programme consists of 7 tracks for parallel sessions and 1 track for special sessions (invitation only).
