Contact name:   jrc-ihcp-nanotechnology
Organiser:  ENPRA Project

 

On 19-20 September 2012 the Final Meeting of the EU-FP7-funded ENPRA project (Risk Assessment of Engineered NanoParticles) will be held at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh (UK). 

After three and a half years of research, the team of the ENPRA project is looking forward to presenting the final results of its activities on the assessment and management of potential health risks from exposure to engineered nanoparticles.

As part of an annual series (2012, 2011 and 2010) and as final event of the project, the meeting will bring together the project leaders as well as regulators and other stakeholders.

Participation and Programme 

To ensure a balanced representation of backgrounds and expertise, participation in this workshop is by invitation only.

1st Annual Stakeholder Workshop - 19 July 2010

The first annual ENPRA workshop was organized in Ispra the 14th and 15th of April 2010, by the Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) at JRC, in collaboration with DG ENT to increase the impact of the workshop and to collaborate with the nanocluster projects. The goal of the workshop was to report and disseminate recent results and ongoing research of all the issues important for nanomaterial risk assessment: measurement and characterization, exposure assessment, fate and behaviour, toxicity and ecotoxicity.

ENPRA EONS Excerpts now publicly available - 27 April 2010

ENPRA's first Expert Panel Meeting took place in Paris, November 2009. The meeting provided a forum for invited experts from around the world to discuss key publications and findings from the latter half of 2009, and to form opinions on their value to future nanotechnology EHS research.

The proceedings of this meeting were summarised in the first 'European Observatory on Nano Safety' (EONS) report, which was available in full to ENPRA members.

We are now pleased to be able to make publicly available excerpts of this report, which compile three of the key publications highlighted within the full report.
