Developments from the 12th SETAC Latin America Biennial Meeting

Helena Assis, SETAC Latin America President

The 12th SETAC Latin America Biennial Meeting will be held from 7–10 September at Santa Cecilia University in Santos, São Paulo State, Brazil. This meeting will bring together members from academia, government and business to promote the interaction among Latin American professionals engaged in environmental science with colleagues from other parts of the world. The aim is to stimulate education and student participation, and to facilitate scientific exchanges among the SETAC tripartite sectors using the theme “Bridging the Gap Between Science and Government.”
