Scientific workshop on Grouping of Nanomaterials: NanoReg2 and GRACIOUS projects

Event Date: 12th September 2018 - 13th September 2018
Paris, France

Scientific workshop on Grouping of Nanomaterials

GRACIOUS has joined forces with the OECD Working Party for Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) and H2020 NanoReg2 project to deliver a 2-day workshop on grouping of nanomaterials.

Following a WPMN meeting on September 11, focussed on Physico-Chemical Parameters Framework for the Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials, NanoReg2 and GRACIOUS will host a 2-day ‘Scientific workshop on Grouping of Nanomaterials’.  The workshop will feed in results from WPMN and bring together international experts to discuss and recommend how groups of nanomaterials can be developed around Pchem and hazard parameters.

Key sessions include:

  • Grouping of nanomaterials: Principles, history and context of Grouping activities
  • Over-arching Grouping schemes
  • Grouping in practice - Connecting to test methods and strategies
  • Development of Grouping recommendations and next steps

Meeting deliverables

The workshop will generate recommendations on nanomaterials grouping intended to support regulatory and standards development and implementation world-wide. Outcomes will be published and promoted to all stakeholders involved in nanomaterials production and regulation.

Who should attend?

This meeting invites participation from stakeholders with experience in nanomaterials grouping and Pchem/hazard assessment.  Participants are expected to actively participate in discussions and recommendations.


Participation is free of charge and delegates will be expected to cover their travel and accommodation costs. 


Places are limited. For all registrants not responding to a direct invitation, the organisers request a short summary of your relevant expertise and reserve the right to place applicants on a reserve list. Places per organisation may also be restricted to ensure international representation.
