Goal: RISK-HUNT3R is the new European effort hosting world-leading experts from many different disciplines aiming to develop a novel and modular framework for animal-free next generation risk assessment (NGRA).
Launched in June 2021 and coordinated by the University of Leiden (NL), the project will run for 5 years with a budget of €23M granted by Europe’s Horizon 2020 program. It unites 37 partners, including academic researchers, regulatory authorities, and safety scientists from key industry sectors, to prove that NGRA can be put into practice.
The vision of the RISK-HUNT3R consortium is to develop a reliable, efficient, and cost-effective chemical safety assessment approach, entirely based on non-animal methods. Integrating cutting-edge in silico (computational) and in vitro (experimental testing) technologies, RISK-HUNT3R will establish, optimize and assemble all essential safety testing elements: exposure assessment, information on chemical distribution in the body, hazard characterization, adverse outcome prediction and determination of actual risk in defined scenarios.
This project receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 964537.
