Open e-Infrastructure to Support Data Sharing, Knowledge Integration and in silico Analysis and Modelling in Predictive Toxicology and Risk Assessment

OpenRiskNet is a 3 year project with the main objective to develop an open e-Infrastructure providing resources and services to a variety of communities requiring risk assessment, including chemicals, cosmetic ingredients, therapeutic agents and nanomaterials. OpenRiskNet is working with a network of partners, organized within an Associated Partners Programme.

The e-Infrastructure

The main concept of the OpenRiskNet infrastructure are virtual research environments (VRE) integrating data, analysis, modelling and simulation services for all areas of risk assessment, which can be deployed to workstations as well as public and in-house cloud infrastructures.

Try it out

Feel free to test out one or multiple of the available services.

  • To get familiar with the OpenRiskNet concept, consult our case studies.
  • Try our workflows that can be directly applied or used as examples for further adaptations.

Tutorials and feedback

  • Webinars – Watch the recordings of the webinars introducing the infrastructure.
  • Help desk – Report issues, give feedback and browse our knowledge base.

You will need to login to access some of the services. Please check the login instructions, terms of use and privacy policy for details.

Implementation Challenge

The implementation challenge provided financial support to associated partners, which are working on integrating their services into OpenRiskNet.

The winners of the challenge are announced on the dedicated page.

Introduction and demo virtual meetings

A series of introduction and demo virtual meetings were organised by the consortium. The video recordings of these webinars and the presentation slides are available in the OpenRiskNet library. The complete list events are announced on the website.

Meet us

Meet us in person at one of these upcoming conferences and other events. Details on the past events and the resources generated are also available.

A final workshop was organised on 23-24 October 2019 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands). The details on the topics, program and materials are available on the event web page or in the workshop report.
