The project aimed to provide comprehensive criteria and guidance for the evaluation of the inherent quality of toxicological data.
  • Call to present methods with commercial potential for in vitro toxicology testing at: The Forinvitox Forum event "From innovation to market success"
    The First Market place in Europe for inventions, applications and products for in vitro toxicology testing at the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm 12-14 May, 2009

    At the Forinvitox Forum event researchers and innovators will be offered an extraordinary opportunity to present their models and innovations with a commercial potential for in vitro toxicology testing. Besides oral and poster presentations, seminars and discussions there will also be a lot of time to meet end users, producers and regulators to hear about their needs and problems. The Forinvitox Forum event will also offer activities aiming at finding partners or others interested in your method.

    All researchers and innovators are hereby invited to send in a short description of their method/model for in vitro toxicology testing on the form at the Forinvitox website.

    All who submit short descriptions will get the opportunity to present their methods/models as posters at the Forinvitox Forum event.

    The submitted descriptions will also be used as the basis for selecting several innovations for oral presentations and feedback from an expert panel on how to proceed from the research stage into a future product.

    All descriptions will be published in an abstract book of the Forinvitox Forum event.

    Do not miss this unique chance at the Forinvitox Forum event to discuss on how your method for in vitro toxicology testing can be transferred into a commercial product!

    Send in the form to forinvitox@expertradet.se
    Last date for submission is February 9, 2009

    Further information about the event will be available in the second announcement in early January 2009, and registration will start in January. Interested in sponsoring the event? Please email Viktoria Axelsson at viktoria.axelsson@expertradet.se

    The Forum is a joint event of the EU-projects Forinvitox and Invitopharma and IVTIP (in vitro Testing Industrial Platform) organized by Silverdal Science Park, Stockholm, Sweden.
