Release and Free Use of SETAC Webinars
Barnett Rattner, President SETAC-North America
At the recent Berlin World Congress, the SETAC World Council unanimously approved the release of our archived webinars. Regional chapters and branches, individual SETAC members, and the general public will have free access to the webinars 6, 12 and 18 months after their original release dates, respectively. So far, three webinars have been archived:
- Science-based Guidance for the Identification and Evaluation of PBTs and POPs: An Overview (17 June 2010)
- The Science of Assessing POPs-PBTs: Focus on Persistence (20 October 2010)
- Tissue Residue Approach to Toxicity Assessment: A Step Forward (30 September 2011)
The first two archived webinars were released more than 18 months ago, so they are now freely accessible to the regional chapters and branches, individual SETAC members and the general public. The third archived webinar was released 10 months ago, so presently it is freely accessible to regional chapters and branches. It will become freely accessible to individual SETAC members on 30 September 2012 and to the general public on 30 March 2013.
This outreach activity will serve SETAC's mission by promoting environmental education and sound science. These highly acclaimed programs are excellent educational tools for undergraduate and graduate students, post-graduate scientists and professionals, and the public-at-large.
