Since its implementation 10 years ago, the European Union's REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of CHemicals) regulation has been moving science forward. To mark the 10th anniversary of REACH's implementation, ET&C has organized a virtual issue highlighting subjects that have proved important in the REACH process, such as data sources, quality prediction methods, alternative approaches, bioavailability, and mixtures. Although this is not an exhaustive list, the articles in this virtual issue serve as examples of the types of high-quality research and science that the REACH regulation continues to drive.
Roskilde University in Denmark hosted the international workshop “Environmental Risk – Assessing and Managing Multiple Risks in a Changing World,” November 16-17, 2015, as part of its annual ‘SUNRISE’ series of conferences and workshops that feature groundbreaking science. The goal of this workshop was to develop a holistic perspective for assessing and managing risks from the multiple stressors and natural hazards that impact ecosystems and the humans who rely on them. Such a perspective is critical as—in a finite world with limited resources—it is paramount that major, multiple risks be appropriately addressed. All 3 articles from the workshop are available in this virtual issue.
