NanoDefine has engaged in the EuroNanoForum 2017 on 21-23 June 2017 in Valletta, Malta, a biannual international conference supposed to be one of the most relevant European forum for scientists, industrialists and policy makers focusing on various nanotechnology fields and associated industrial sectors (http://euronanoforum2017.eu).

A more general overview poster was given on main objectives, tasks and the outcome of the NanoDefine project, while two more technical posters were presented on the “Evaluation of particle sizing with analytical centrifugation methods” by Christian Ullmann from Dresden University of Technology, and on “A flexible and extensible Knowledge Base for Mapping of Measurement Technique Performances and Material Properties in the NanoDefiner” by Raphael Brüngel from the Technical University of Dortmund and are available at the partner intranet of the project website.

On 20 June 2017, the day before the ENF2017, experts of the NanoDefine team were actively contributing to the 2nd CEN Open Meeting “European Conference on Standardization for Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials” held also in Valletta, Malta (http://international-events.afnor.org/nanotechnologies_openmeeting_2017/), and organized by CEN/TC 352 “Nanotechnologies” in cooperation with CEN-CENELEC Management Centre, the EU Commission and EFTA.

Here, a poster was shown by Michael Stintz from Dresden University of Technology on “Guidance on detection and identification of nano-objects in complex matrices”, and an oral presentation given by Philipp Müller, BASF, on “Methods to support the identification of nanomaterials (size, surface area, surface composition)”. In addition, Michael Stintz (TUD), Philipp Müller (BASF) and Rudolf Reuther (NOMI) participated as panel members in two round table discussions addressing requirements of reliable data for the effective management of nanomaterials and the question of how European research projects impact standardization.

All documents presented during this 2nd Open CEN Meeting on Standardization for Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials are available via the following links:

Here comes the 2nd NanoDefine Bulletin highlighting the most recent results produced by the project since spring 2016 and their practical potential for end-users, such as material and instrument manufacturers, to match the analytical challenges triggered by the EC Recommendation for a Nano-definition (2011/696/EU). Main objective of the EU FP7 NanoDefine project is to develop a methodology and measurement strategy to support practitioners in industries, regulatory bodies and enforcement laboratories to reliably implement the EC Nano-definition.

Join the Final NanoDefine Outreach Event on “Classification of Materials according to the EU Nano-Definition” on the 19-20 September 2017 at “Leopold” Hotel in Brussels (Rue du Luxembourg 35, 1050 Bruxelles) (http://www.hotel-leopold.be). This 2-days final meeting will give you a unique opportunity to learn more about the outcome of the NanoDefine project and possible practical implications, and how to meet future regulatory needs associated with the practical implementation of the EU recommendation on the Definition of Nanomaterial (2011/696/EU).

The concept of the European FP7 project NanoDefine is: Development of an integrated approach based on validated and standardized methods to support the implementation of the EC recommendation of the for a definition of nanomaterial. The major outcome of the project is the establishment of an integrated tiered approach based on validated rapid screening methods (tier 1) and validated confirmatory methods (tier 2). With the developed NanoDefiner eTool and user manual, end-users will be guided to implement the developed methodology.
