- February 27, 2018
The first edition of the Cosmetics Europe Science Conference “Cutting-edge safety science paves the way to the future” took place on 26-27 October 2017 in Brussels. It brought together top scientists, industry experts, key decision makers and regulatory specialists from the cosmetic and personal care sector to showcase progress and new discoveries, but also explore the challenges lying ahead. The Cosmetics Europe Science Conference featured both plenary lectures and parallel breakout sessions. Several poster sessions complemented the conference and the best posters were awarded during the special Award Ceremony. The conference also enjoyed the inauguration of the LRSS Programme Scientific Advisory Board.
The success of the conference clearly confirmed the need to give a voice to scientists as well as provide a platform to discuss the cutting-edge safety science with industry experts and key decision makers from the cosmetic and personal care sector.
Judges recognized the added value of the event dedicated specifically to scientific discussions:
"A well thought-out and well-organized event! Coherent strategy, good engagement with partners. The organisers made the effort to find a venue that added to the DNA of the new event that they have created".
