| FramingNano Multi-Stakeholder Workshop – A dialogue on the Regulation and Governance of Nanotechnologies
The FramingNano Project Consortium is pleased to announce that an important multi-stakeholder Workshop on the future regulation and governance of Nanotechnologies will take place in Brussels on Thursday 26 February 2019 from 09h00 to 17h00.
The purpose of this Workshop will be to facilitate an open dialogue amongst active stakeholders on the key issues and factors that should shape a future governance framework for the regulation of nanotechnology across a range of industry sectors.
Following keynote presentations on key environmental, health and safety (EHS) issues, key ethical, legal and social issues (ELSI), and industry needs by top-level experts, there will be three interactive workshop sessions on EHS, ELSI and possible governance models, where attendees will be encouraged to provide input and contributions concerning their positions on the future governance of nanotechnology. These inputs will be used to further refine the FramingNano consultation process and the development of a future nanotechnology governance proposal to the European Commission that reflects the positions of key stakeholders.
All nanotechnology stakeholders with an active interest in the shaping of future nanotechnology governance and regulation are encouraged to attend this Workshop.
Attendance at the Workshop is free. Please email [email protected] for further details.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL PLACES FOR THIS WORKSHOP HAVE NOW BEEN FILLED.
