The GRACIOUS Framework for Grouping, Read Across and Classification of Nanomaterials and Nanoforms

Event Date: 19th February 2020

Many variations of a single substance can exist, with differences in size, morphology and surface characteristics. Depending on the size, some variations have to be reported and regulated as nanomaterials. Financial and ethical considerations mean that safety testing of each variation for their potential adverse effects is virtually impossible. For these reasons, improved ways to obtain safety information are needed for a successful and sustainable nanomaterials sector. The Horizon2020 project GRACIOUS develops a highly innovative science-based framework to enable practical application of Grouping, leading to Read Across and classification of nanomaterials and nanoforms. Want to learn more on how to do grouping? Join us for this informative webinar.
