Conference on New Tools and Approaches for Nanomaterial Safety Assessment

From February 7th – 9th, Malaga / Spain will be hosting the conference on New Tools and Approaches for Nanomaterial Safety Assessment jointly organized by five major European FP7 projects NANOSOLUTIONS, SUN, NanoMILE, GUIDEnano and eNanoMapper.

 

The conference aims at presenting the main results achieved in the course of the projects fostering a discussion about their impact in the nanosafety field and possibilities for future research programmes. The conference welcomes consortium partners from the organizing projects, as well as representatives from other EU projects, industry, government, civil society and media. The conference will be wrapped up with a stakeholder workshop, which will provide a platform for an open discussion with interested stakeholders that could ultimately guide the research needs that should be addressed in future projects.

 

Conference topics

  • Hazard assessment along the life cycle of nano-enabled products
  • Exposure assessment along the life cycle of nano-enabled products
  • Risk assessment & management
  • Systems biology approaches in nanosafety
  • Categorization & grouping of nanomaterials
  • Nanosafety infrastructure
  • Safe by design
