GRACIOUS involves first class scientists from large companies, government, small and medium enterprises and academia.
In order to streamline the risk assessment process, the main goal of GRACIOUS is to generate a highly innovative science-based Framework to enable practical application of grouping, leading to read-across and classification of nanomaterials/nanoforms.
In December 2018, the long-awaited update to REACH intended to more explicitly account for nanomaterials formally entered the statute book. Yordas Group and the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre will be hosting a webinar that will summarise these updates to REACH. The presentation discusses how nanomaterials are covered in the EU with an emphasis on new developments.
Creating a meaningful dialogue about risk assessment and management of nano-(bio)materials through cross-cutting insights from nanosafety and nanomedicine fields was the mission a training school delivered by three EU-funded Horizon 2020 projects BIORIMA, GRACIOUS and NanoInformaTIX. 47 young researchers were brought together from across the globe (spanning Europe, North and Latin America) to learn from 26 nanotechnology experts at the historic centre of Venice, Italy, over the week of 25 to 29 March 2019, for intensive yet exciting training.
Advancing nanomaterials safety testing was the mission of two European Union-funded Horizon2020 projects, NanoReg2 and GRACIOUS.
Stella Stoychev, Sustainability Lead at Yordas Group, has successfully completed the CDB Service 4 ‘Dissemination Capacity Building’ training course on behalf of H2020 GRACIOUS.
