Managing nanotechnology risks
Nanotechnology is an increasingly growing field of scientific innovation offering societal benefits. However, nanotechnology poses significant challenges to risk governance structures and processes. The EU-funded Gov4Nano project will design and create a self-sustained Nano Risk Governance Council (NRGC) to implement the Risk Governance Framework for managing nanotechnology risks relevant to social, environmental and economic benefits. The team will develop an operational transdisciplinary Nano Risk Governance Model for nanotechnologies lying on a framework developed by the International Risk Governance Council. The NRGC will engage and coordinate stakeholders to overcome the fragmentation of existing knowledge and information, prepare its transfer, and establish a self-sustainable Nanosafety Governance Portal for dialogues between stakeholders.
