Date and location:

10th-12th October 2011, Steigenberger Inselhotel in Konstanz, Germany


Goals of the workshop:

• The challenge of the 2013 deadline for cosmetics is concerning all of us. Obviously there are scientific challenges beside the political ones. We hope to gain momentum from this for a forward looking strategy to develop the science for the systemic and chronic toxicities for cosmetics and others. We strongly believe that this extends to other parts of the world as it extends to other products and industries.

• In the context of our transatlantic think tank for toxicology (t4) we will have a workshop to develop 5 white-papers for the respective areas taking a larger perspective how to make further progress.

• This is meant to be a scientific process. We do not aim to make political recommendations. We are focussing on a roadmap for scientific progress.


Outcome objective: An expert report to be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
