Effect Modelling Workshop 2019

Leonardo Hotel Heidelberg
Bergheimer Straße 63
69115 Heidelberg

This workshop aims to provide participants with knowledge on the basics of modelling as a tool in the context of environmental risk assessments of pesticides, as well as hands-on experience in model application via targeted exercises.

Planned topics:
  • The modelling cycle will be explained together with the essentials of good modelling practice in current pesticide risk assessments.
  • A comprehensive overview on different types of models will be presented.
    • The organism-level modelling will focus on toxicokinetic/toxicodynamic (TK/TD) modelling, mainly for survival estimates (GUTS).
    • The population-level modelling will focus on spatially explicit individual-based models, mainly for weight-of-evidence approaches.
  • A more detailed description will be presented for a set of models which will be elaborated with hands-on exercises.
    • The participants will use the models made available to them to address risk assessment questions.

A detailed program will be sent to the participants before the workshop.
