NanoReg2 Kickoff

The NanoReg2 project held its official kickoff meeting in Paris to commence essential work on developing innovative approaches for nanotechnology development and regulation.

Over the next three years, NanoReg2’s thirty-six (36) partners from across the nanotechnology value chain will create new principles and ideas, rooted in robust data, that can establish ‘Safe by Design’ as a fundamental pillar in the validation of a new manufactured nanomaterial. A regulatory system underpinned by Safe by Design would provide oversight for manufactured nanomaterials in a cost-effective and efficient manner, while providing flexibility in addressing new targets and requirements over the long-term.

NQCG´s role as a partner in the NanoReg2 project

NQCG is Task Leader of Task 1.6. “NanoPlatforming and Data Management” (WP1 - Regulatory orientated activities establishing a framework of grouping approaches).

This project, http://www.nanoreg2.eu/, has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement 646221.
