The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro
The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV) is an expanding society formed to strengthen links between organisations and individuals with interests in the many different aspects and applications of in vitro and in silico approaches throughout Europe and beyond. ESTIV is active in the promotion of exchange of information on in vitro and in silico approaches by organising congresses, workshops and courses. Furthermore, ESTIV encourages and extends research and education in in vitro and in silico toxicology in Europe, collaborates with other organisations and societies concerned with in vitro and in silico approaches, facilitates communication between professionals in government, industry and academia to promotes effective application of in vitro and in silico methods for hazard identification and risk assessment. The official journal of ESTIV is Toxicology In Vitro.

ESTIV Congresses
The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV) organises a congress every 2 years to promote the development of in vitro and in silico approaches. The ESTIV2020 congress aims to create a forum of scientists in a unique atmosphere for discussions and exchange of knowledge. The objective of the congress is also to promote contact between junior and senior researchers, students and toxicologists from European companies, governments and universities involved in the development and use of in vitro and in silico approaches.
