Goal and Objectives
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 (NMs)/nanoforms (NFs).
- Integrate key stakeholder needs with state-of-the-art thinking on grouping and read-across of NMs/NFs in order to design, develop and refine a sustainable Framework.
- Develop knowledge and generate data as the basis to derive hypotheses, criteria and guiding principles for grouping, leading to classification and read-across, as building blocks for the GRACIOUS Framework.
- Refine and integrate tools to build the GRACIOUS Framework, Guidance Document and software module.
