GRACIOUS: Grouping, Read-Across, CharacterIsation and classificatiOn framework for regUlatory risk assessment of manufactured nanomaterials and Safer design of nano-enabled products


Prioritised methods and their reproducibility for intrinsic physicochemical properties

Methodical guidance on physicochemical characterization for grouping and read-across purposes. This includes a proof of reproducibility on benchmark materials between the lead lab and the backup labs for each property.

Report of the NMs/NFs, NEPs and released NMs/NFs supplied to other WPs

Table of NMs, NFs NEP and released NMs/NFs distributed to WP3, 4 and 5 for characterization / testing.

Guidance Document

A Guidance Document detailing the entire Framework and its individual components will be generated It will provide details of how to conduct grouping and use the results for readacross for risk assessment andor classification The Guidance Document will further detail how the software module cf Task 67 can be employed in current risk assessment and management tools eg SUN DSS GUIDEnano Tool

Data curation system

Interim deliverable due month 12 and 24Data curation system based on the eNanoMapper database with tools for data curation and ontology mapping

Requirements for data quality criteria, data sources, modelling tools and terminology

Interim deliverable due month 6 and 18This report describes the criteria and requirements for data quality terminology and modelling to be incorporated in the GRACIOUS Framework

Stakeholder events, training and conference

Interim deliverable due month 6 and 27We will have three stakeholder events together with WP1 to gather feedback on the development of the tool We will also run two training schools if possible together with other EC funded initiatives to transfer knowledge to the next generation of researchers and a final event to disseminate the projects results to stakeholders
