NanoSafety Cluster: Ethic Impacts Assessment Tool
Ethical Impacts Assessment (EIA) targets nanomaterials applied to improve properties of components of dental materials and dental hygiene products. The dental materials include composites, adhesive systems, impression materials and dental implants. The dental hygiene products include toothpaste, toothbrushes, and mouth rinse. In literature, innovative applications of nanotechnology in nanobiosensors for detecting oral cancer and nano-drug delivery are also mentioned. Identified ethical issues are health related, liberty and sustainable development (instead of environmental). A small-scale EIA was performed by Ineke Malsch. On this case study the freely available EIA tool (http://enaloscloud.novamechanics.com/riskgone/thresholdanalysis/) will be applied and its functionality presented. Attendees will be able to get hands-on experience during this 1.5 h workshop/hackathon.
