The Swetox consortium has expired on December 31, 2018. The various parts of the business are further developed in new forms.
- The infrastructure and commissioned activities at Swetox in Södertälje have been transferred to RISE, Sweden’s research institute. Within RISE’s broad offering, there are now also tailor-made solutions for safety assessment in, among other things, the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, for all steps in the development of safe products. RISE is also a partner for research and education in toxicology.
- The academic research has been prepared domiciled at other institutions at KI and at Örebro University. The EDC-2020 project and EDC-MixRisk will be completed according to the plans for the projects.
- The National Platform for Nanosafety, SweNanoSafe, has moved to IMM (Institute for Environmental Medicine) at KI.
- The universities that were part of Swetox continue to cooperate in the area of chemicals, health and the environment. They form a new consortium called SwACCS, which stands for “Swedish Academic Consortium on Chemical Safety”, to meet the major challenges that the vision “A chemical safe world” require and which the UN has pointed out through its “Sustainability Development Goals”.
The new consortium will be coordinated by Örebro’s and Lund’s universities, starting from January 1, 2019 and a website will be established shortly.
