Implementation of Risk Governance: meeting the needs of nanotechnology

Description du projet

Gérer les risques liés aux nanotechnologies

Les nanotechnologies forment un domaine d’innovation scientifique en pleine croissance qui offre des avantages pour la société. Cependant, les nanotechnologies posent des défis importants aux structures et processus de gouvernance des risques. Le projet Gov4Nano, financé par l’UE, permettra de concevoir et de créer un conseil autonome de gouvernance des risques liés aux nanotechnologies (NRGC pour «Nano Risk Governance Council») afin de mettre en œuvre le cadre de gouvernance des risques pour la gestion des risques liés aux nanotechnologies qui présentent des avantages sociaux, environnementaux et économiques. L’équipe développera un modèle transdisciplinaire opérationnel de gouvernance des risques liés aux nanotechnologies, reposant sur un cadre élaboré par le Conseil international de gouvernance des risques. Le NRGC engagera et coordonnera les parties prenantes afin de surmonter la fragmentation des connaissances et des informations existantes, de préparer leur transfert et d’établir un portail autonome de gouvernance de la nanosécurité destiné à établir un dialogue entre les parties prenantes.

Objectif

Gov4Nano will design and establish a well-positioned and broadly supported Nano Risk Governance Council (NRGC). Organizing, connecting and engaging are key activities in Gov4Nano and its creation of a sustainable NRGC. Gov4Nano will develop an operational trans disciplinary Nano Risk Governance Model (NRGM) for nanotechnologies, building on an established governance framework developed by the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC). Engaging stakeholders (including regulators) to proactively address nano-specific safety and seek dialogue for joint activities. NRGC and its precursor project Gov4Nano will engage, in order to support these activities, with the broad variety of stakeholders across all relevant nano-disciplines (chemical, biocides, food and feed, pharma and medical devices and materials development) and draft a review on our knowledge progress over the last decade whilst initiating dialog. To boost the quality of the dialog it will create a platform for dialogues between stakeholders in a “trusted environment” inclusive of civil society.

The NRGC core business is to coordinate, guide and harmonize in order to overcome the fragmentation of current knowledge, information and needs over various sectors and disciplines (workers, consumers/patients, environmental safety) and to prepare the transfer of this knowledge.

To that end, the NRGC will be equipped with a self-sustainable NanoSafety Governance Portal (NSGP) consolidating state-of-the-art and progressive nanosafety governance tools including ones for dialogues and measuring risk perception. Major efforts will be towards requirements for data harmonization and data curation to be defined and laid down in guidance on obtaining harmonized and standardized quality-scored data collections promoting a big data approach for nano-toxicology. Research activities will be initiated for regulatory sound knowledge in support of harmonized (OECD) guidance for characterization and testing of nanomaterials.
