Slides Available from Scientific Workshop on Grouping of Nanomaterials

On September 12-13, 2018, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), NanoReg2, and GRACIOUS hosted a "Scientific Workshop: Grouping of Nanomaterials." The Workshop brought together 120 nanotechnology specialists from Europe, North America, and Asia to discuss a bottleneck in nanomaterials development and testing. The agenda and the following slides from the workshop have been posted online (see http://www.nanoreg2.eu/oecd-joint-meeting-sept-12-13 ):

- Welcome slides.
- Session 1: Nanomaterial Grouping: Principles, History, and Context:
-- OECD WPMN Initiatives on "Grouping and read-across for the safety assessment of manufactured nanomaterials": Juan Riego Sintes, European Commission (EC) Joint Research Center (JRC);
-- Regulatory priorities/needs linked to Grouping (EU): Celia Tanarro, European Chemicals Agency (ECHA); and
-- Regulatory Priorities and Information Needs Linked to Grouping of Nanomaterials (U.S. perspective): Kenneth Moss, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
- Session 2: Cutting Edge Grouping Frameworks:
-- The NanoReg2 Grouping Approach: Andrea Haase, Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR);
-- Draft GRACIOUS framework for grouping and read-across of nanomaterials for regulatory risk assessment and safe-by-design: Agnes Oomen, National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM);
-- Environmental hazard and risk of nanomaterials: grouping concepts for aquatic and terrestrial toxicity: Dana Kühnel, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ); and
-- Adverse outcome pathways for grouping of nanomaterials: Sabina Halappanavar, Health Canada.
- Session 3: Grouping in Practice -- Connecting to Test Methods and Test Strategies:
-- OECD WPMN Expert Meeting on Physico-Chemical Parameters Framework for the Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials: Kenneth Moss, EPA;
-- NanoReg2 grouping case studies -- Human tox: Blanca Suarez-Merino, Swiss Center of Applied Human Toxicology (SCAHT)/TEMAS;
-- Ecotoxicity Data for the Grouping of Nanomaterials: José María Navas, Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA);
-- GRACIOUS Hypothesis and IATAs: Vicki Stone, Heriot-Watt University;
-- nanoGRAVUR: Nanostructured materials -- Grouping in view of worker, consumer and environmental safety and risk minimization: Thomas Kuhlbusch, Federal Institute for Occupational Safety an Health (BAuA), and Wendel Wohlleben, BASF; and
-- NanoToxClass: Establishing NM grouping strategies according to toxicity and biological effects for supporting risk assessment: Nils Krüger, Evonik, & Martin von Bergen, UFZ.
- Concluding remarks and close.
