Working in the Commission is a challenge. This was one of the first lessons I learned from Michael Balls when I arrived at Ispra in January 2002, when he explained to me the duties of ECVAM. The area of alternatives was a special surprise for me, as I did not expect such strong political support and such a high visibility for the work of ECVAM. In every policy forum on cosmetics or chemicals, or in meetings with the European Parliament or the JRC Board of Governors, there is a request to do more on alternative tests. Alternatives are in the picture, and ECVAM is in the spotlight all the time!
