Establishing a Nanotechnology Risk Governance Framework

Project description

A new hazard and risk assessment strategy for nanotechnology

Assessing nanotechnology in terms of social, environmental and economic benefits requires a new risk management approach. With this in mind, the EU-funded NANORIGO project is formulating a new approach based on available and new high-quality data and advanced scientific tools developed for industry and regulators’ decision-making. Feedback from stakeholders (regulators, industries, policymakers and civil society) will also be considered. Potential hazard and exposure will be explored. The project will use a life cycle perspective and integrate available knowledge on ethical, social, environmental and economic concerns into a user-friendly format that can be easily adapted and transferred into regulation for hazard, exposure, and risk assessment and management of nanomaterials. A web-based information and communication platform to facilitate access to data will also be launched.
