The overall objective of the EU FP7 project OpenTox was to develop a framework that provides a unified access to toxicity data, (Q)SAR models, procedures supporting validation and additional information that helps with the interpretation of (Q)SAR predictions. The OpenTox framework has been developed as an open source project to optimize the dissemination and impact, to allow the inspection and review of algorithms and to attract external contributors. We closely collaborated with related projects (e.g. OECD toolbox) and authorities to agree on common standards and to avoid duplicated and redundant work. The project was very international with partners from Switzerland, Bulgaria, Italy, Greece, Russia, India, USA and Germany. The  partners were from academic, government and economic background. Additionally, the project had an advisory board with members from government organizations and industry. I was researcher, algorithm and REST web service developer in this project.
