Åke Bergman symposium – From science to action for a chemical safe world

20 maj, 2019, 09:30 - 17:00

This symposium is a part of the celebration year for Örebro University (20 year anniversary) and it was presented as a gift from all Swetox university partners to Åke Bergman at the final Swetox workshop 17 December 2018. This gift is an acknowledgment of the key role Åke has played in the Swetox success story. Åke continues to play an important part in setting up the Swedish Academic Consortium for Chemical Safety (SwACCS) that will take over the role of Swetox.

The symposium, supported by Örebro University and Svenska Kemisamfundet, will take place 9.30-17.00, 20 May at Hörsal B in Bilbergska huset, Örebro University.
