This 2021 edition of the EuroNanoForum addressed Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials as the key elements to guarantee the functioning, long term durability, safety, and environmental compatibility of many devices, machinery, and services, highlighting the fundamental role of advanced materials for the transition to greener technologies, and a more sustainable future, making a significant contribution to the
Thorsten Knoll, from Fraunhofer IBMT, explains how the SABYDOMA project develops an Inline Toxicity Screening of Nanomaterials in order to align the toxicity test procedures with the production process of nanomaterials for enabling safer manufacturing of nanomaterials.
Ignasi Gispert Pi, from APPNPS, talks about SABYDOMA’s aim of developing a Regulatory Sandbox for Nanomaterials underpinned by Safe- & Sustainability-by-Design (SSbD) methodologies and strategies taking advantage of Computational Models based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). This will offer the possibility to explore and test a regulatory framework capable of delivering effective and efficient oversight of nanomaterials
Anthony Bochon, from G&S, talks in this video about the key finding of the 1st legal workshop on SbD organised by SABYDOMA on January 2021, where together with international lawyers and scientists, SABYDOMA explored potential definitions of SbD approaches form the legal perspective.
William Stokes, from UNIVLEEDS, explains in this video the coupling of a nano-material production line to a bio-membrane screening platform to demonstrate in-line screening. The video shows how the bio-membrane sensor is being developed, how it will perform and how it is integrated into the screening platform. Furthermore, it is also shown how the coupling to
Video presentation of the EU H2020 project SABYDOMA. The video was presented during the Part 1 “Delivery from science” of the NanoSafety Cluster event “The delivery/usability of S(S)bD for science, regulators and the industry”, as a satellite event of the EuroNanoForum 2021.
Founded in 1961, the Society of Toxicology (SOT) is a professional and scholarly organization of scientists from academic institutions, government, and industry representing the great variety of scientists who practice toxicology in the US and abroad. The Society’s mission is to create a safer and healthier world by advancing the science and increasing the impact of
The first digital nanoSAFE conference took place this year from 16th to 23rd November 2020. The conference was surrounded by 2 satellite days organised by the NanoSafety Cluster: the Educational Day (on November 16th) and the Training Day (on November 23rd). The Educational Day was designed as guidance for the entire NanoSafety community, including young researchers, to highlight
Yvonne Kohl, from SABDOMA’s project partner Fraunhofer IBMT, has been interviewed about the project. As a result, there is a very nice interview (in German only), where she explains the project’s concept and objectives, and highlights the importance of the project outcomes and the impacts, not just for the research community but for the whole society. About
This year, the OpenTox 2020 Conference took place online (21st– 25th September). The purpose of the OpenTox Association is to promote the community-based exchange and use of open knowledge, methods, tools, data, reference resources, and standards including open software, ontology and application programming interfaces in the scientific activities of predictive toxicology, safety assessment and risk management, including
