Per the event coordinators:

“There is currently an initiative to drive forward transitions in predictions of how the environment and its functioning will respond to chemical exposure, with a particular focus in the UK following the National Environment Research Council’s call for proposals entitled ‘Emerging Risks of Chemicals in the Environment’. This workshop is an opportunity to hear about some of the problems encountered and solutions proposed by those working in the field of aquatic risk assessment. One such solution is currently under development by Fera Science Ltd and the Centre for Crop Health and Protection (CHAP): the Innovate UK funded E-Flows Mesocosm – the first fully flow-through field scale mesocosm for higher tier risk assessments.”

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Dr. Rachel Benstead, Fera Science Ltd – The E-Flows Mesocosm – first fully flow-through field scale Mesocosm Facility
  • Dr. Neil Boonham, University of Newcastle – eDNA as a method for monitoring environmental change
  • Prof Gary Fones, University of Portsmouth – Passive sampling – an alternative approach for monitoring plant protection products and other chemicals in the aquatic environment
  • Chris Taylor, Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD), HSE – Mesocosm studies and their use in pesticide regulatory risk assessments: A regulatory view point
