The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (RTD) will jointly organise a Workshop on Safe and Sustainable Smart Nanomaterials in Ispra (Italy) on 24-25 March 2020.
The workshop is focused on smart (responsive, multi-functional) nanomaterials, as such or embedded in products, which are developed for application in industrial sectors such as agriculture, food, packaging and cosmetics.
In general, the workshop aims at facilitating the exchange of information on functionality, safety, sustainability and legislative aspects of smart nanomaterials among developers, scientists and regulators.
The workshop will take place on 24 and 25 March 2020, from 8:30 to 17:30
It is structured in three sessions of presentations, each followed by a dedicated breakout session:
- Session 1 “Designing smart nanomaterials” will be entirely dedicated to developers.
- Session 2 “Safety and sustainability aspects” will give the floor to experts on assessing safety and sustainability of nanotechnology, to illustrate and discuss challenges with smart nanomaterials.
- In Session 3 “Regulatory preparedness”, regulators will present the legislative context and some initiatives concerning smart nanomaterials.
