Because of the importance for international regulators, policy makers, and scientists to exchange views on how to develop and implement innovative methodologies into regulatory assessments, NCTR established an annual internationally renowned Global Summit on Regulatory Science. Now in its eighth year, the Global Summit’s goal is to engage the global community and harmonize research strategies via collaborations that aim to build knowledge of and promote regulatory science, define research needs, and seek to strengthen product safety worldwide by training regulatory scientists. The Global Summit is led by the Global Coalition which is comprised of regulatory science leaders from around the world. NCTR’s Director serves as the co-chair of the Coalition’s executive committee and works with the Coalition to promote global interaction. The 2017 Global Summit on Regulatory Science was held September 18-20, 2017, in Brasilia, Brazil. The Summit hosted a record number of 170 registered attendees and presentations from scientists representing 10 different countries. The Summit reinforced the need for and initiation of scientific exchange and collaboration.
