Risk Governance of Nanotechnology

Project description

New guidelines to assess the risk of engineered nanomaterials

The risk assessment approach used for conventional chemicals may not be 100 % applicable to engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). As such, a new framework for risk governance of ENMs is needed. With this in mind, the EU-funded RiskGONE project will recommend adjustments to current guidelines or develop nano-specific guidance documents for the risk assessment of ENMs. Specifically, it will evaluate, optimise and pre-validate standard operating procedures and test guidelines and integrate them into a framework for risk governance. Relying on current strategies for risk assessment of conventional chemicals, this new framework will comprise modular tools. It will incorporate ethical aspects and societal risk perception, and also manage acceptable and unacceptable risks through transfer or mitigation.
