UK-Japan co-operation on research on endocrine disrupters in the aquatic environment - UK supervisor 2005-10 - CB01063

Description
In December 1999 the UK and Japan signed a research co-operation agreement on endocrine disrupters in the aquatic environment. The agreement aims to provide the conditions for the exchange of scientific information and development of joint research activities, together with the sharing of research findings and the development of joint research projects, joint symposia and academic discussions on topics of mutual interest.

The initial agreement is in the process of being extended for another 5 years and this project involves the appointment of a UK national supervisor who will work with a Japanese counterpart and joint steering group to direct the scientific progress of the agreement.
