NanoSafety Cluster Week

–  10 October 2019
Date: 07 October 2019
Time: 09:00

The NanoSafety Cluster will host a conference dedicated to “Building confidence in risk assessment and governance of Nanomaterials Innovation” in Copenhagen, October 2019.

The 4-day event kicks off with the caLIBRAte final workshop focused on current knowledge and future outlook on stakeholder risk perception and information needs and nanosafety data availability. caLIBRAte also presents nano-specific human and environmental risk assessment and management tools tested in the project, plus the decision support tool developed, the NanoRisk Governance Portal.

A two-day Nanosafety Cluster Scientific Conference then follows, organised and sponsored by the projects NanoCommons, NanoSolveIT and NanoInformaTIX, focused on the increasingly important roles of data accessibility and predictive modelling in nanomaterials governance and risk assessment.

Towards in silico nanosafety assessment – integrating experimental and computational approaches includes oral and poster presentations from Nanosafety Cluster projects to update the community on latest nanosafety research and set the direction for the next 4 years via the nanoinformatics and nanosafety governance projects.

NanoSafety Cluster business closes the week, including an open NSC meeting to which all are welcome to contribute, Working Group meetings to progress key community-driven activities, and a Steering Group meeting. In parallel, a training session on the caLIBRAte Nano Risk Governance Portal and underlying risk assessment, management and decision support tools will be offered.
