If so, please stop by at the caLIBRAte booth and talk with us about the possibilities for you to contribute or collaborate.

We search contributions or collaborations for:

  1. high-quality data on bulk and nanomaterials and (eco-)toxicological studies
  2. high-quality workplace measurements
  3. high-quality environmental release and concentration measurements

The data will be used for predictive risk assessment model development and testing.

See you in Elsinore,

  • Are stakeholders aware of state-of-the-art tools and models for risk governance of nanomaterials and nano-related products?
  • What are the experiences, needs and priorities for decision-making, risk appraisal and risk transfer?
  • Are existing approaches to risk governance practical and effective?
