Scientific workshop on Grouping of Nanomaterials. NanoReg2 and Gracious projects
September 12-13, 2018. Paris
NanoReg2 has joined forces with the OECD Working Party for Manufactured Nanomaterials and H2020 Gracious project to deliver a 2 day workshop.
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.
Wednesday 12 September
Welcome and introduction
Session 1: Nanomaterial Grouping. Principles, history and context
Moderator: Andrea Haase, German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (DE)
Session 2: Cutting edge grouping frameworks
Moderator: Claire Skentelbery, Nanotechnology Industries Association (BE)
Session 3: Grouping in practice - connecting to test methods and test strategies
Moderator: Tomas Puzyn, University of Gdansk (PL)
|1630||Breakout sessions - Grouping frameworks|
Thursday 13 September
Breakout sessions (Hosted twice during 2 morning sessions)
Session 4: Reporting from breakouts on day 1 and 2
Moderator: Mar Gonzalez, OECD
Final panel discussion
Moderators: Andrea Haase, Wendel Wohlleben, Erik Bleeker, Nicholas Manier and Vicki Stone
The closing session generates discussion on the conference outcomes from breakout sessions, long term global objectives and the roadmap forwards for effective implementation through multiple routes.
Concluding comments and close
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 is discussion and recommendations and places are limited.
