ASPIS cluster

Animal-free Safety assessment of chemicals: Project cluster for Implementation of novel Strategies


PrecisionTox is part of the ASPIS cluster along with ONTOX and RiskHunt3r.
ASPIS brings together the three consortia funded under the European Commission’s call for projects advancing the safety assessment of chemicals without the use of animal testing.

Collectively, we represent more than 70 institutions across 16 European countries and the U.S. delivering on an EU €60 million investment in providing timely answers about chemicals’ effects on human health.

ASPIS Open Symposium 2023


The third ASPIS Open Symposium in 2023 will be held on 14-15 September 2023 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The event is organised at the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. All scientific sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions and meetings will be held in the GR. The congress centre also provides ample space for networking.

The event will follow the 57th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology, EUROTOX. We invite all ASPIS cluster members, collaborators and partners to join the Symposium.

The symposium will present the latest work of the ASPIS cluster formed by the three Horizon 2020 consortia: ONTOXPrecisionTox, and RISK-HUNT3R and focus on the implementation of New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) for chemical risk assessment.

The programme and registration details will be communicated at a later date.
