Parliamentary evening on ‘Novel Indicators for Chemical Assessment’

On November 7, 2024 SynCom is organizing a parliamentary evening in the German Bundestag on ‘Novel Indicators for Chemical Assessment’ as part of the ‘Modernizing Hazard Indicators (ModHaz)’ project. The event is directed by Harald Ebner (Alliance 90/The Greens), Chairman of the Committee on Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety, and Consumer Protection. The goal of the parliamentary evening is to introduce new ideas for chemical assessment directly into politics based on a policy brief previously developed in collaboration with various stakeholders, and to establish a long-term relationship between politicians and Helmholtz experts. Participation is by invitation only.
