The Danish Society of Toxicology and Pharmacology has the honor to organise EUROTOX 2024 in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. The congress will take place from 8 to 11 September 2024.
The congress theme “Toxicology – A Quest for safe Chemicals and Medicines” reflects the congress programme including a variety of topics dealing with safety of drugs and environmental chemicals, new and emerging technologies, personalised medicine, human health effects caused by exposure to chemicals as well as safety issues arising from climate changes.
The Local Organising Committee (LOC) and the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) have made an inspiring programme, including the newest aspects of modern toxicology and methodologies. We emphasise the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration within toxicology and with the medical industries.
The Scientific Programme (SP) includes four “Short Oral Communications Sessions” (OS) giving the young researches the possibility to present their latest research results. We encourage everyone to submit their abstract to get the possibility to present at one of the numerous OS.
The venue is The Tivoli Congress Center, located in the city centre at the waterfront, 12 min by metro from Copenhagen Airport, walking distance to central city locations e.g. the Tivoli Park, the railway station and the Town Hall Square. The Congress Centre, designed by the architect Kim Utzon, has a capacity of up to 5500 meeting participants, includes congress hall, auditoriums and big meeting rooms all at the ground floor. The Tivoli Hotel has 679 rooms, swimming pool, playrooms, fitness & business centers, cloud bar and restaurants. Another 3000 hotel rooms are located within walking distance.
Denmark has a population of 5.9 million persons; 86% speaks English, being a part of Scandinavia, and is the eldest monarchy in the World. Copenhagen is a historic city that founded in the 10th century as a small Viking fishing community. The cultural and historic settings have inspired to the most innovative trends in fashion, design and architecture.
Copenhagen is situated on the waterfront, with a number of bridges connecting the districts, characterised by parks and promenades. Copenhagen’s landmarks such as Tivoli Gardens, The Little Mermaid statue, the royal castle Amalienborg and Christiansborg palace, Rosenborg Castle Gardens, Frederik’s Church, and many museums, restaurants and nightclubs are tourist attractions. It is easy to get around walking, cycling or with public transportation (metro, road and waterbuses). The social programme includes reception at the Copenhagen Town Hall, Gala dinner at the Langelinie Pavilion close to The Little Mermaid statue reach by Canal Cruise.
Copenhagen is centrally located between the continental Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic area and easy reached by worldwide-connected flight from all parts of the globe.
On behalf of the Danish Society of Toxicology & Pharmacology and LOC, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to Copenhagen for EUROTOX 2024.
