One year into our work – face to face meeting in Iceland

One year into our work – face to face meeting in Iceland

The 3rd RiskGONE project meeting took place in Reykjavik, Iceland on 6-7 February. The face to face meeting with representatives of all consortium partners marked one year of activity since the project kicked off in January 2019.

Looking back at the project’s first year, partners came together to advance in their efforts to provide solid procedures for science-based risk governance of nanomaterials. The meeting was organised together with two other H2020 projects: the infrastructure project NanoCOMMONS and NMBP14 project NanoSolveIT.

RiskGONE partners shared updates on their risk governance research and their approach to risk-benefit analysis which will shape the design of the Risk Governance Council to be established. In addition the current state of tools for nanomaterials risk assessment were presented. The tools are being developed based on characterisation of ENMs and human and eco-toxicological hazard assessment in order to identify with better certainty the environmental and human health impacts of a number of nanomaterials. The results of tests using these tools will then be integrated into the work of the European Risk Governance Council.

The meeting hosted the second edition of a joint workshop on Data Management, Adverse Outcome Pathways and Dissemination organised by RiskGONE together with NanoCOMMONS and NanoSolveIT.

Getting together all partners and work package leaders also served to discuss the harmonisation of ongoing activities with H2020 projects NANORIGO and Gov4Nano, together with which RiskGONE is working to build a robust, long-term Risk Governance Framework and Council to guide the safe and transparent governance of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs).

About the Project
RiskGONE is an EU H2020 project aiming at providing solid procedures for science-based risk governance of nanomaterials, based on a clear understanding of risks and risk management practices.
