IES – Attending Virtual Conferences and Workshops
IES – Attending Virtual Conferences and Workshops 800 600 Admin

Although physical attendance of conferences remains difficult for all of us, we are continuously looking for ways to stay up to date on the latest guidance topics, as well as contributing to conferences through posters or video presentations.

Peter Hvorslev recently attended the online workshop “How to identify Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals”, organised by the Akademie Fresenius, while Arno Wess gave a presentation at JSOT on the topic of ERA, followed by a Q&A session.

Over the next few months we are also looking forward to delivering our scientific posters, as well as presentations, for conferences such as the ACS Fall 2020 Meeting and SETAC’s North American annual conference.

We look forward to playing our part in future events and to seeing you again soon.

Easter
Easter 800 600 Admin

Being a Swiss company, we always make sure our staff is provided with enough chocolate to get them through the holidays.

This year, the Easter bunny has brought us some more unconventional gifts instead of the usual chocolate eggs.

Happy Easter from everyone at IES!
