ASPIS is a science for societal change initiative funded by the European Commission’s research and innovation programme, which assembles three projects to better assess the hazards of chemicals to human health and the environment without animal testing: RISK-HUNT3R, ONTOX, and PrecisionTox.

ASPIS represents more than 70 institutions across 16 European countries and the U.S. delivering on a €60 million investment to help transform health protection by adopting new approach methodologies (NAMs) that more reliably detect and, when appropriate, rapidly regulate and mitigate the exposure to toxic substances. ASPIS aims to translate talk about responsible innovation into action for an environmentally sustainable chemicals industry.
- Day #1 will focus on the biomolecular, cellular and computational advances that are driving this initiative. Different applications of NAMs will be presented, including: discovering adverse outcome pathways and their quantification; enhanced grouping of chemicals; detecting and characterizing hazards.
- Day #2 will focus on the impact of implementing these technologies on risk management with reference to case studies.
