Cefic-LRI Grant Openings 2013 Invitation for Grant Applications

The Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) is one of the major voluntary initiatives of the European chemical industry to support its competitiveness and innovation potential. LRI aims to identify and fill gaps in our understanding of the hazards posed by chemicals and to improve the methods available for assessing the associated risks.

LRI sponsors high-quality research, published in peer-reviewed journals, and seeks to provide sound scientific advice on which industry and regulatory bodies will draw to respond more quickly and accurately to the public’s concerns.

In the context of its LRI programme, the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) is accepting grant applications to carry out research in the following areas:

• LRI-B14: Skin sensitisation - chemical applicability domain of the Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA)
• LRI-B15:Efficiency of Risk Management Measures (RMM)
• LRI-ECO23: Combining passive sampling and toxicity profiling to assess mixture toxicityof surface waters
• LRI-ECO24: Prediction of Non-Extractable Residues (NER) using structural information
• LRI-ECO25: Development of soup tests for the risk assessment of NER in soil
• LRI-EMSG58: Quality assessment of the epidemiological evidence of adverse effects to humans of endocrine active substances in the environrment
• LRI-N4: Grouping nanomaterials and establishing criteria for Safe by Design
• LRI-S3: Benefits and risk evidence streams for decision makers
Deadline: 1 September 2013

Project specifications, budget details and application forms can be found on the Cefic LRI website. Only proposals that fit the project specifications and are submitted in the official LRI application form will be considered.

For further details, please contact Dr. Bruno Hubesch, Cefic-LRI Manager at or the LRI Secretariat at
