12th EPAA Annual Conference: Science-based regulation

5 December 2016 (afternoon), in Brussels.

The aims of this Brussels-based event were threefold:

  • to give participants a state of the art on Science-based regulation, ahead of the EC Scientific conference on Alternatives (6-7 December 2016)
  • to report on EPAA achievements and milestones through 2016
  • to bestow the EPAA 3Rs Science Prize on the winner

MEP Françoise Grossetête (EPP First Vice-President) also outlined a vision for Science-based regulation.

The conference took place on 5 December 2016: 13:00-18:00, in the European Parliament, Brussels. It gathered academics, representatives from EPAA members, European and international institutions, NGOs, as well as national regulatory authorities.
