WG Mission, Vision and Activities

Chair: Rob Aitken

Co-Chair: Michael Riediker

Lausanne 16th Feb 2011

First WG Meeting


This WG aims to improve knowledge concerning the risks / exposure/ toxicology /safety / impact particularly in relation to risks assessment and to contribute to promote safe, sustainable, and socially responsible nanotechnology.

A key element is to define and implement an interface process between academia, industry, policy makers and society to facilitate open exchange (data, methods, knowledge) between the stakeholder groups on these issues. This can provide a trusted (independent) information resource which captures, interprets and disseminates the emerging evidence on nanoparticle risk issues.

The NANOfutures Coordination Action provides a basis for how this can be achieved. Additional development could take many forms including publications, state-of-the-art reports, conferences, evidence appraisal workshops, and definition of actions. At the heart of this is likely to be a web-based resource linked to the NANOfutures website. A key aim (not currently foreseen under the NANOfutures Coordination Action) would therefore be a specification for that information resource, and a plan for its implementation. This should be and be seen to be independent of any of the stakeholder groups.

WG Structure


The WG will create synergies among ongoing EU activities including the NanoSafetyCluster, the ERANET on safe implementation of innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SIINN) and the NanoImpactNet network. In the framework of the regulatory research, the WG will closely interact with the regulation and standardisation WGs and will establish contacts with the OECD Working party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPNM) and the Working Party on Nanotechnology (WPN).

Great Interest on fast growth of nanotechnologies


From ETP sectorial Needs… application fields, expected benefits and impact, risks involved, main international actors etc (Contribution to D1.1) DONE

  • Most of the ETP identified needs are potentially important for many sectors.

  • Each ETP will be asked to rank the clustered list from the most to the least important need.

  • Such common elements will be highlighted by DAPP, leading to a clustered list of ETP needs.

  • Results in D2.2

…to WG consideration

  • WG should then take in account in their key nodes identification and analysis based on ETP needs from different sectors.

WG view on ETP needs


Discussion on proposed actions/instruments to address ETP needs:

a. Develop awareness among the ETPs and the participating organizations along the value chain for the importance of a safety strategy relevant to the commercial deployment of nanomaterials

b. develop resources and capability through training and information transfer to ensure that there are people and facilities available to do the work

c. Gather/disseminate existing information on safety and safety strategy for nanomaterials and share with ETPs and other organisations

d. Carry out and disseminate research to ensure that the safety strategy framework is based on suitable scientific/technical knowledge to avoid perception based regulation which could impede innovation without further improvement of safety

e. Develop a sector- and value-chain specific/ differentiated safety strategy framework (as opposed to overarching)

f. Ensure global harmonization of testing and assessment procedures
