New live-streaming training courses to avoid the current problems of travelling
"Excellent timing, very good supporting materials. A fair and balanced review of public domain versus proprietary resources ...
it is excellent value for money."

Breaking down the whole course into short sessions over consecutive days allows you to consolidate what you have learned before the next session and to better elaborate questions.
In addition to the attendance on the live streaming, you receive a copy of the recording for your personal use and all the material related to the course. Finally, the trainer is available at any time during the session or afterwards to answer your course-related questions. A certificate of attendance is also available upon request.
Optimal involvement and interactions between the trainer and the trainees are ensured by limiting the number of attendees to 5 per class. The trainees are encouraged to interact, ask and answer questions with the other trainees and trainer.
The trainer, Dr. Elena Fioravanzo, is a qualified chemist and a well-recognized scientific investigator in computational chemistry and computational toxicology. She has more than 20 years of experience as a consultant and in providing training on approaches and on specific software.
To ensure the quality of the training and to allow all the participants to meet their goals the number of attendees is limited to 5 per class. Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

"Really helpful in explaining the OECD Toolbox – I now feel much more confident in using it. I learnt a lot on QSAR and read across. Good resources to take away."
"I liked the opportunity to ask questions."
"Great course and I can’t wait to put my learning into practice. It worked really well as a virtual course"
