Enabling a Sustainable Harmonised Knowledge Infrastructure supporting Nano Environmental and Health Safety Assessment
About the workshop
This international event is organized in the context of the US-EU dialogue opened in the area of Nano Environmental and Health Safety (NanoEHS) that has the goals to engage US and EU experts in active discussions encourage joint programs of work and to support activities of communities of research involving EU and US participation.
It has become increasingly clear that the generation, representation, evaluation and communications of safety-related evidence on chemicals including nanotechnology requires the establishment of a stronger knowledge infrastructure supported by harmonised methods, language and data science practices. Emerging nanotechnology in particular provides strong scientific challenges due to the complexity of the substances and the characterisation of their interactions with biological systems, including potentially new and novel mechanisms, not understood well by current knowledge.
The objective of the workshop is to facilitate networking, knowledge sharing and idea development on the requirements and implementation of a sustainable knowledge infrastructure ...
