The trainee will take part in the EU-funded IMI-PREMIER project, in which EMA is consortium partner. There are around 1900 active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in use, yet the environmental risks of only a small proportion of these have been assessed. PREMIER will deliver a novel assessment system for characterising the environmental risks of APIs. The trainee will identify APIs to be added to an overarching inventory, with their environmental risks. The initial focus will be on centrally approved products. In consultation with consortium partners this could be extended to a limited set of nationally approved products. The trainee will help develop criteria for prioritisation of environmental risk assessment. The traineeship will help deliver:

  • an inventory of APIs on the European market together with important ecotoxicity, physico/chemical and consumption data;
  • a list of approximately 10 APIs selected for Mode of Action-driven testing in the PREMIER project. These APIs will be selected based on environmental exposure and a lack of ecotoxicity data on their specific Mode of Action.
  • a study report with a description of the decision tree(s), the prioritisation results, the criteria used for API selection and the final results;
  • a peer reviewed publication.
