DEMEAU workshop on effect-based monitoring tools
The Ecotox Centre participates in the organization of a DEMEAU workshop on effect-based monitoring techniques: In vitro bioassays as innovative tools for water quality assessment. Recent technological developments have provided powerful quantitative bioassays to effectively measure a wide range of major classes of toxicants. These effect-based tools hold great promise in being introduced and integrated in current monitoring strategies, albeit facing barriers such as a lack of current legislation.The EU project DEMEAU aims to further optimize bioassays, to enhance their regulatory acceptance and to promote their use. The workshop will be held in Paris on 29 January 2015.
