ABOUT THE ESTIV 2022 Congress

The 21st International Congress on In Vitro Toxicology (ESTIV 2022) took place in Sitges near the city of Barcelona-Spain between November 21-25, 2022. The general theme of the congress was “Key enabling non-animal technologies for research, education and testing”. This slogan was fully reflected in the thematic sessions to which participants submitted their abstracts for oral or poster presentations. The ESTIV congress started with a pre-congress workshop on bridging across methods in the biosciences (BeAMS): the opportunity of COVID-19 organised jointly with the JRC. The scientific programme offered 15 scientific sessions, lunch sessions hosted by ILSI/ESTIV and JSAASE and a post-congress workshop organised by EPISKIN Academy. The ASPIS annual cluster meeting was a satellite activity open to the public and presented the latest research of the three H2020 consortia (ONTOX, PrecisionTox and RISKHUNT3R) focusing on New Approach Methodologies (NAMs). Please visit ESTIV 2022 Congress web page to obtain more information on the program and registration process.
