Horizon Scanning Workshop

The Global Horizon Scanning Research Prioritization Project aims to collect and prioritize the most important future research questions as recognized by scientists from around the globe working in government, academia and business. The results of this project contribute to the mission of SETAC to achieve Environmental Quality Through Science®. The need for this initiative was proposed in a recent issue of Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management.

The SETAC Africa Horizon Scanning Workshop will be held on Thursday 8 October. Output from this workshop will include a multi-authored publication in one of the SETAC journals (Environmental  Toxicology and Chemistry, Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management).
