FP7 ERA-NET on Nanosafety
Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

22 April 2015

EuroNano Forum 2015, 12. June 2015, Riga, Latvia - Joint Seminar on NanoSafety: SIINN, ProSafe, NANoREG, OECD, NanoDefine and NanoValid

Registration (€ 200 if booking by April 20, 2015 - € 290 if booking by May 20, 2015)

Background Information:
Consumer acceptance of nanomaterials and their products depends on a high level of public awareness regarding health and safety issues. This Seminar focuses on the current progress and status of work to integrate Safe-by-Design into the development and manufacture of nanomaterials and nano- products.
The SIINN Era Net consortium for "Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" explains the new "Consolidated Framework for EHS of Manufactured Nanomaterials" and presents the results of some SIINN projects.
The NANoREG Guidance Document gives a specific description of selected nanomaterials, the dispersion protocols to be used for their characterization, as well as the minimum requirements to be applied for the in vivo, in vitro and eco-toxicological studies in NANoREG.
Uncertainties and risk potential will be identified at an early stage and can be reduced by alternative solutions based on NANoREG’s Safe-by-Design concept, which can be applied to all or parts of the innovation process of nanomaterials and nano inspired products.
PROSAFE will – beside other objectives - facilitate and promote the acceptance of Safe by Design in industry’s innovation processes by launching common calls and twinning of projects.

The SIINN ERA-NET is funded under the ERA-NET scheme of the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission, Research Directorate- General, Grant Agreement No. 265799
