Safe by Design of nanomaterials in industrial production processes

Event Date: 24th September 2021

The symposia will highlight practical approaches for risk prevention and safety management in laboratories and production sites using nanomaterials, on the basis of a Safe by Design (SbD) approach, integrating safety since the early stages of product and process development. SbD is a cornerstone of current and future R&I policies in Europe for the development, production, and use of chemicals, materials, and products. As set in the recent EU Chemical Strategy for Sustainability, specific SbD and sustainability criteria will be developed and used to facilitate access of safe innovations to funding opportunities and to the market.

GRACIOUS approach to Quality Assessment of Nanosafety Data

Event Date: 28th June 2021

Using high quality data is essential for performing robust risk assessment of chemical substances, including engineered nanomaterials (NMs) but quality assessment information is currently not available for most of the available nanosafety datasets. To address this issue, the EU H2020 project GRACIOUS proposed a methodology to facilitate the evaluation of quality and completeness for sets of NM physicochemical and(eco)toxicological data based on established criteria: i.e., completeness, reliability, relevance and adequacy. Join us on 28 June to discuss our approach!

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.
