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. 

So make sure to secure your place in time!

Would you instead prefer to follow this conference digitally via our Live Stream?

Then you can find further information here!
