Published in 18/1/2019
Mónica Amorim, researcher of CESAM & dBio, was awarded the SETAC FELLOW 2018.
The SETAC Fellows Award was created in 2010 to recognize members demonstrating BOTH (i) significant long-term scientific or science policy contributions and (ii) service and leadership within SETAC. The identification and appointment of Fellow status is intended to provide additional recognition of excellence and contributions of SETAC members to ecotoxicology, environmental chemistry, risk assessment and life cycle assessment. The hallmark of a SETAC Fellow is leadership within the professional and scientific arenas as well as SETAC.
While there is no upper limit to the number of Fellows, no more than 1–2% of the membership hold this prestigious recognition.
The group of SETAC Fellows constitutes a body that has demonstrated achievement in science or science policy and possesses institutional knowledge of the society. As such, they will serve as a sounding board for the SETAC World Council and may be asked to help lead select efforts. Further reading here.
