Join our hybrid event! Unnoticed and ungoverned: How nanotechnology is slipping through the cracks

Together with our members BUND, we are organising a hybrid session focusing on nanomaterials! Join us in Brussels or online to discuss the role of civil society in shaping the regulatory frameworks of nano governance.

As industry innovation outpaces regulation, governments must adopt a precautionary approach towards nanomaterial governance, support the development of a comprehensive knowledge base about the impacts of nanomaterials, and ensure a wide range of stakeholders is included when developing the much-needed regulatory frameworks for nanomaterial development, use, and end-of-life.

Our event will bring together expert speakers from the European Commission, civil society, and researchers.

Over two panel discussions, we will explore how nanomaterials are currently governed, with an emphasis on test guidelines, as well as the much-needed participation of civil society in the process.

Join us for an afternoon of interactive discussions and find out:

  • Why nanomaterials governance is important
  • What nanomaterials guidelines we have at hand today and how public authorities and standardisers apply them
  • What to keep in mind to ensure nanomaterials are safe
  • What role the civil society sector can and should play in the process

Join us for lunch before the session, and stay for drinks after!
