SETAC Europe

SETAC Europe is one of the four Geographic Units (GU) of the global Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), established to promote and undertake activities of SETAC in Europe, and to support activities of SETAC in the Middle East and Africa, currently organised as a Regional Branch to SETAC Europe. As a Geographic Unit we share the mission of SETAC.

SETAC Europe is dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of stressors, chemicals, and technology on the environment. The Society also provides an open forum for scientists and institutions engaged in the study of environmental problems, management and regulation of natural resources, education, research and development, and manufacturing. SETAC Europe is incorporated in Belgium as a not-for-profit organisation. The society is governed according its articles of association and by-laws. SETAC Europe maintains its administrative office in Brussels, Belgium.

The primary goals of SETAC Europe are

  • to support the development of principles and practices for protection, enhancement and management of sustainable environmental quality and ecosystem integrity;
  • to encourage interactions among environmental scientists and disseminate information on environmental toxicology and chemistry; and
  • to provide a forum for communication among professionals in government, business, academia, and other segments of the environmental science community and for the protection and welfare of the general public.
