Again in 2022: 7th International Conference “Worker, Operator, Bystander and Resident Exposure and Risk Assessment”

For many years, the International Akademie Fresenius Conference “Worker, Operator, Bystander and Resident Exposure and Risk Assessment” has been the perfect platform for bringing together the scientific, industrial and regulatory communities. We therefore cordially invite you to this year’s Conference. Plenty of exciting presentations are awaiting you! 

The conference will be taking place once again in 2022: On 13 and 14 December in Cologne. Of course, the health of all our participants is our number one priority. That is why we have strictly limited the number of places this time around.

Should you have missed the opportunity to secure one of our on-site places - or prefer not to travel at this point in time, you can still listen in on our exciting contributions and discussions: Via our Live Stream! In the run-up to the event, we will provide you with your login details which will allow you to participate and put forward all your questions from the location of your choice.

Would you instead prefer to join on-site in Cologne?

Then you can find further information here!
