Advancing nanomaterials safety testing was the mission of two European Union-funded Horizon2020 projects, NanoReg2 and GRACIOUS. They brought together 120 nanotechnology specialists from Europe, North America and Asia at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris on September 12-13. Experts from research, industry, regulation and policy worked to improve how safety information can be more effectively obtained, supporting faster growth in nanomaterials development.
The NanoReg2 project presented itself within the 6th annual EU-Korea NanoWorkshop, hosted in Brussels on January 16.
A Korea delegation including the Ministry of Science and ICT and the National Nanotechnology Centre presented updates on items including:
NanoReg2 will be represented at conferences throughout 2018 and we would be delighted to meet you. We will be at the following events and please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find the right project partner for each event:
If your organisation manufactures, makes, uses, distributes or disposes of nanomaterials, our project partners the Institute of Occupational Medicine would like to ask for your help.
As part of the NanoReg2 project, we are trying to find out what you know and understand about worker and end user risk from nanomaterials and the concept of Safe by Design. We would like to encourage individuals who are involved in product development, health and safety, production engineering or risk management to take part.
We live in an age where technology is advancing at a dynamic speed. Uncertain risks are a growing concern with the speed of so many new innovations and new products being developed. To find a solution how to deal with this ongoing technology developments on one hand and the uncertain risks on the other hand is one of the tasks in the NanoReg2 project.
The second issue of the NanoReg2 newsletter has been officially published by the consortium. The document provides an update on the project's latest developments, the Industrial Workshop on Safe-By-Design and the upcoming events for the project.

The first issue of the NanoReg2 newsletter has been officially published by the consortium. The document provides an introduction to the project -- including a list of 'quick facts' such as funding and objectives -- and walks readers through how we intend to use Safe by Design concepts in our work. The newsletter outlines how we define Safe by Design and how the project intends to work closely with industry to produce tools that can be relevant in the field of manufactured nanomaterials.
The NanoReg2 project has published two new resources it will use throughout the life of the project:
The Nanosafety Cluster published their Autumn newsletter this month, highlighting updates and developments from nano projects across Europe. The NanoReg2 project was featured in the newsletter, informing stakeholders of our kickoff and inviting them to follow our progress on the website.
This September, the NanoReg2 project held its official kickoff meeting in Paris to commence essential work on developing innovative approaches for nanotechnology development and regulation.
