Welcome to Copenhagen!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Danish Society for Toxicology and Pharmacology in conjunction with EUROTOX is honored to organize EUROTOX 2021 in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. The congress will take place from 26 to 29 September 2021.

The venue is the Tivoli Congress Center, located in the City Center, 12 minutes by Metro from Copenhagen airport, and within walking distance of central city locations such as the Tivoli Garden Park and the railway station.

Copenhagen hosts the European Environmental Agency that surveys the state of the environment and environmental health in the European Union, and is a dynamic student hub, with 10 university campus areas across the city. Furthermore, Denmark is the headquarters of several pharmacological companies and has strong regulatory-based research in human health.

Copenhagen is a historic city that founded in the 10th century as a small Viking fishing community. The historic palaces, feature ancient atmospheres that are perfectly suited to contemporary architecture. The cultural and historic settings have inspired to the most innovative trends in fashion, design and architecture.

Copenhagen has a strong connection with its waterfront and a number of bridges connecting the various districts; parks and promenades and tourist attractions including 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.

In these enchanting surrounding the EUROTOX 2021 participants can engage with Continuing Education Courses, scientific symposia, and workshops and enjoy ample network opportunities. We will also host an international exhibition of trade and society stands.

The congress theme “Toxicology of the next generationCombined efforts in the quest for safer chemicals and medicines” is reflected in the congress programme. This covers a variety of topics dealing with the safety of drugs and environmental chemicals, new and emerging technologies, personalized medicine, human health effects caused by exposure to chemicals as well as safety issues arising from climate change.

On behalf of the Danish Society for Toxicology and Pharmacology and EUROTOX, it is a great pleasure to welcome all participants to Copenhagen for EUROTOX 2021.
