Beyond state of the art, through Safe and Sustainable Development approaches for materials development @ NanoInnovation 2022

The safety and sustainability of chemicals and materials and their applications is a cornerstone of current EU policy and industrial strategies. Policy makers and industrial actors are working to identify frameworks and criteria for the practical implementation of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), and these will increasingly become premium aspects to access funding and contracts. Nanomaterials provide an exemplar of initial implementation of Safe by-design (SbD) & Safe and Sustainable by-design (SSbD) practices.  The symposium will reflect on the recent policy discussion at EU at national level and will provide examples and case studies from research and production processes and will illustrate findings of Gov4Nano, Sbd4Nano and other EU projects on the matter.

The symposium is open to both innovators and risk managers in research organizations, companies, institutions, and other organizations active and interested in the safety and sustainability of advanced materials, nanomaterial and related products.
