NOTOX is one of the building block projects of the European research initiative SEURAT (safety evaluation ultimately replacing animal testing) funded by EU-FP7 HEALTH programme and the European Cosmetics Association (Cosmetics Europe). The total funding for the cluster projects is 50 million €. This initiative with six projects as building blocks aims at the common strategy “towards the replacement of current repeated dose systemic toxicity testing in human safety assessment”.
