A stakeholder’s perspective of Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design – a bigger picture!

In February 2022, SABYDOMA organised a workshop on A Stakeholder’s Perspective of Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD), where different visions and definitions of SSbD from the viewpoint of different stakeholders (such as: Academia, Industry, EU Institutions, Standardization and Regulatory bodies, and NGOs) were discussed. A reminder of this original workshop can be found here.

SABYDOMA now has the pleasure of organising a second, follow-up, SSbD workshop, to explore what has happened in the meantime. This workshop will take place on 7th March 2024, 9:00-10:30h in Vienna (Austria), as part of the ANTHOS 2024 summit, and brings together leading experts in Safe-by-Design (SbD) and Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD) from projects funded under the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe initiatives.

This second workshop is entitled “A stakeholder’s perspective of Safe-and-­Sustainable-by-Design – a bigger picture!”. It will highlight four years of research and dissemination on the SSbD approach with the contribution of stakeholders from academia, EU institutions and industry who will discuss the current status and understanding of the SSbD approach. The workshop will start with a presentation of SABYDOMA’s legal paper covering the content and findings of the two legal workshops organised in January 2021 and June 2023. It will be followed by a round table discussion with panellists answering questions from the moderator on the implementation, challenges and potential developments of the SSbD approach since the European Commission recommendation of 8th December 2022 and in the light of ongoing scientific research.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • Eva Valsami Jones (University of Birmingham, UK)
  • Victor Puntes (Applied NanoParticles, Vall d’Hebron Institut de Recerca, Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Spain)
  • Sean Kelly (Nanotechnology Industries Association, Belgium)
