 The overall objective of the EC4SafeNano project is to develop a distributed Centre of European organisations for Risk Management and Safe Innovation for Nanomaterials & Nanotechnologies. The operational objectives are therefore:
  • To understand the needs of the various stakeholders.
  • To identify the resources and capabilities available inside/outside the consortium to address the stakeholder needs.
  • To provide solutions and build a range of services.
  • To develop mechanisms and operating procedures.
  • To test and benchmark the services.
  • To develop a sound exploitation plan and business plan.

The EC4SafeNano Day will be organized as satellite meeting during nanoSAFE 2018. The event consists of three workshops:

Workshop 1: Establishment and operation of Focus Network, EC4SafeNano

Aim: Discussing the already proposed concepts of the centre, exchange of information and services, promote the centre, collecting feedback and check the willingness of external participants to join as APs.


Workshop 2: Blueprint for National Nanosafety Centres Development & Sustainability

Aim: BNP-DS will focus on the production of a blueprint (a set of guidelines for do’s and don’ts) for the development and sustainability of a nanosafety platform. It will be an interactive session between the representatives of various nanosafety platforms and other stakeholders. It is a first step towards the development of the EC4SafeNano network for nanosafety platforms.


Workshop 3: Overcoming barriers to making data FAIR – integrating data management into data generation workflows-a joint workshop with H2020 NanoCommons

Aim: The workshop aims to gain feedback on utility and user acceptability of proposed solutions to knowledge management and FAIR data and based on the user / stakeholder feedback to develop recommendations regarding solutions to maximise data sharing and data accessibility for the entire community and all stakeholders. Among the barriers to be considered, and for which best-practice solutions will be developed, are: Primary publication of data before the data are made available in a database; Labelling of the data (ontology); Confidentiality of the data; Security of the data storage and access (trust that the data are protected); Format of the data for long-term accessibility and sharing etc.


  • Event Type: Open for all but registration is mandatory. 
  • Participants: Consortium members, Associated Partners and open to all interested parties 
  • Target Audience: Regulators, industry and consultants, academics, standardization bodies, representatives from EU member states and EC. 
  • Organizers: E. Frejafon (INERIS), N. Shandilya (TNO), I. Lynch (UoB), A. Jovanovic & G. Balachandran (EU-VRi) 

Participation in the event is free of charge and is open for all, but registration is mandatory due to limited capacity of the meeting room!
