National Research Center for the Working Environment in Denmark Will Hold Course on Nano-Risk Governance Portal

The National Research Center for the Working Environment (NFA) in Denmark will hold a course on October 10, 2019, on the Nano-Risk Governance Portal, a new portal for the risk management of nanomaterials. See http://nfa.dk/da/nyt/nyheder/2019/kursus-i-ny-portal-til-risikoledelse-af-nanomaterialer#0 and http://www.nanocalibrate.eu/nano-risk-governance-portal NanoSafety Cluster Week will be held October 7-10, 2019, in Copenhagen, Denmark, and will include:

- October 7, 2019: caLIBRAte Final Conference -- Building Confidence on Risk Assessment and Governance of Nanomaterials;

- October 8-9, 2019: Open Conference: Towards in silico nanosafety assessment -- integrating experimental and computational approaches; and

- October 10, 2019: Three parallel events:

-- NanoSafety Cluster open meeting, Working Group meetings, and Steering Group meeting;

-- Introduction and training in the caLIBRAte Nano-Risk Governance Portal and supporting risk assessment and management tools; and

-- Introduction and training in tools for decision-making in analytical characterization.

See https://www.nanosafetycluster.eu/eu-nanosafety-cluster-week-2019-7-10-october-2019-copenhagen-denmark/. The Nano-Risk Governance Portal will launch in October 2019. Funded by the European Union's (EU) Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program through the caLIBRAte Project, the Nano-Risk Governance Portal will be a state-of-the-art "one stop shop" site to support nano-risk governance. The Portal will provide:

- Qualified, trustworthy information on nanomaterials and nano-enabled products, their safety, and different stakeholders' risk perception;

- Tools for horizon scanning, identification of nanomaterials, risk assessment, risk management, decision support, and workplace monitoring that have been thoroughly tested and validated by performance testing when possible;

- Access to case studies and qualified material, hazard, and exposure measurement data for direct access information and especially to support nano-risk governance tools; and

- Guidance and good practice information relevant for research and development, as well as established industrial production of nanomaterials and products containing them.

Registered users will be able to use the Portal to find data and use tools to assess and monitor the risks of specific nanomaterials or nano-containing products to the environment, work environment, and consumers. The Portal is targeted to members of occupational health and safety organizations in institutions and companies that develop, produce, or use nanomaterials and advisors who support this process.
