Science and Society

RECETOX closely cooperates with national and international institutions in implementing international treaties and conventions, through the National Center for Toxic Compounds and the Stockholm Convention Regional Center.
Doing so, ensures that results of research and development activities are translated into policy – forming of new legislation or contributing to a ban on production of harmful substances or products containing them.
