The Cat-App project, initiated and funded by Concawe, aims to provide a cost-effective integrative approach solving the similarity challenges of complex substances and (petroleum) UVCBs. The concept is to develop a framework based on chemical-biological read-across, a novel direction in regulatory decision making regarding hazard- and risk assessment. The approach is to integrate innovations in (i) in vitro testing, (ii) high-throughput genomics and (iii) integrative data analyses and visualisation into a transparent workflow for read-across assessment of UVCBs in regulatory programmes – thereby significantly reducing the need for testing in animals.
Cat-App Stakeholder workshop was held in Antwerp, Belgium on March 22, 2017.
