Safe-by-design and NFFA: Workshop Lund January 9-10, 2020
The aim of this event is to bring together the NFFA and the nanosafety community that would enable them to build a strong bridge among the different stakeholders. It will give them the opportunity to inform and to share their different point of views. This event welcomes the scientists who are concerned by the nanosafety, nanoscience and nanotechnology issues and who wish to contribute by answering this question through their own perspective:
“Safe-by-design, which opportunities in the next NFFA pilot proposal?”
The course of this workshop will be divided into 4 sessions dedicated to these matters:
- NFFA and the nanosafety: How can we create synergy between NFFA and the nanosafety communities?
- Needs of and tools for the nanosafety community: How can we improve the future TNA catalogue?
- Future Joint Activity: development of a Nanomaterial hazard assessment platform for low volume and low concentration samples: to what extent would it be useful for research on nanosafety?
- Follow-up of the users’ results, working together for the data governance and for the “prevention” around nanosafety: can we collaborate with nanocommons and the NSC training programmes: on the one hand to manage the data and on the another hand to improve the nanosafety know-how of NFFA’s users and workers?
Each participant will have the opportunity to give his/her advice, his/her propositions and will help to build a Taylor-made project that will be useful for the nanosafety research. The stakeholder of the nanosafety research team will find some key elements that would increase their chances to have access to the NFFA facilities through its transnational access programme.
The course of this workshop will be as follows: 4 to 5 short presentations per session (between 15 to 20 min per presentation) followed by a round table discussion. Depending on the number of participants, the discussion could occur in small groups or with the whole assembly. A synthesis report will combine all these perspectives.
As an option, a poster and kakemono exhibition will be possible to facilitate the exchange and discussions between each attendant of the event.
