EC Will Hold Workshop on Research on the Safety of Nanomaterials

Lynn L. Bergeson

On April 17-18, 2008, the European Commission (EC) will hold a workshop on research on the safety of nanomaterials. The main objectives of the workshop are:

  • To increase interactions between researchers to enhance networking, sharing of outcomes of the research projects, and boosting synergies between research groups across Europe and abroad;
  • To improve communication of the results of research to risk assessment bodies and other interested parties, providing sound science-based data for informing opinions and scientific advice to policy makers; and
  • To examine the current knowledge to review, if need be, the priorities in safety of nanomaterials’ research.
