I was happy to explain @EP_Environmenthow @EU_ECHA could support a #chemicals strategy making the #EUGreenDeal reality. Keep in mind: high ambition needs resources, also for ECHA.

Our most recent webinar covers the GRACIOUS Framework for Grouping, Read Across and Classification of Nanomaterials and Nanoforms. You can view the webinar in the link:

So enjoyed being back with Rob & the lovely nano folks at @Gov4Nano! Watch this space for exciting work on ‘Building trusted environments for information sharing’ we are doing with RIVM Netherlands.

Inspirational presentation on “Trust” from @hilarysutcliffe at the @Gov4Nano consortium meeting

Interesting to read the new Industrial Strategy for Europe. Our #nano #riskgovernance strategy will need to fit into this vision for the future EU.
