European Centre for Risk Management and Safe Innovation in Nanomaterials & Nanotechnologies
“EC4SafeNano aims to build an open collaborative network gathering expertise in risk management of nanotechnologies. 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. This centre will be independent and science-based and will support industry, safety service providers, regulators and other public or private stakeholders.”
This description, taken from the homepage, outlines what this project aims to do. Its mission is to fill a crucial gap within the European Union’s nanosafety activities. While the EU finances research into nanosafety with around € 20-25 Mio per year, it is not always easy to guarantee that the results are used in the best possible way after a project has finished. The solution is to establish a European Center for Risk Management in this area. This Center will be a virtual one, i.e. it will be distributed between different locations.
The project started in November 2016 and will run 3 years. It has 15 partners and is coordinated by Emeric Frejafon from INERIS. We are within EC4SafeNano in charge or setting up a European Focus Network on Training and Education.
