Invitation to the Final NanoDefine Outreach Event “Classification of Materials according to the EU Nano-Definition”, 19-20 September 2017 in Brussels, Leopold Hotel
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).
Announcement of the “NanoDefine Summer School”, 21-23 June 2017, RIKILT, Wageningen, The Netherlands
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.
