Proceedings Available on 2015 U.S.-EU Joint Workshop on Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts

In December 2015, the proceedings from the March 12-13, 2015, U.S.-European Union (EU) joint workshop on ¡§Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts¡¨ were posted online. See http://us-eu.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/2015_EU-US_nanoEHSWorkshopProceedingsFINAL.pdf The workshop was sponsored by the European Commission (EC) and the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). It brought together European and American scientists engaged in nanotechnology environmental, health, and safety (nanoEHS) research to identify areas of shared nanoEHS interest and mechanisms for collaboration to advance the science. The report includes information on the following:

- NanoEHS Scrimmage:
„« Purpose and Goals;
„« Scrimmage Steps;
„« Results of the nanoEHS Scrimmage; and
„« Discussion of the Results and Recommendations.
- Community of Research (COR) Breakout Sessions and Plenary Reports:
„« EcoToxicity COR;
„« Human Toxicity COR;
„« Databases and Computational Modelling for nanoEHS COR;
„« Exposure through Product Life COR;
„« Risk Assessment COR;
„« Risk Management and Control COR; and
„« Characterization COR.
- Research Strategies:
„« Quality Assurance for the Characterization of Nanomaterials and Implementation of Labelling Requirements for Food and Consumer Products;
„« U.S. Progress Review on the Coordinated Implementation of the NNI 2011 EHS Research Strategy;
„« Research Needs and Data Gaps;
„« Regulatory Research Roadmap; and
„« EU Closer to the Market Roadmap.
- Collaborations and Funding Opportunities:
„« U.S. Funding Opportunities;
„« NANoREG Progress Report, ProSafe, and NANoREG II; and
„« EU Funding Opportunities.
