UK-Japan co-operation on research on endocrine disrupters in the aquatic environment: 2005 workshop - CB01059

In December 1999, the UK and Japanese Governments signed an arrangement to cooperate on research on endocrine disruption in the aquatic environment, which included a commitment to an annual meeting of UK and Japanese scientists working in this area. Defra is now planning to hold the sixth workshop in the UK, on 17-18th January 2005. It is intended to link this with the ceremonial signing of a new agreement, to extend the collaboration for a further 5 years.
