November 27th, within the NanotechItaly 2014 Conference, Venice, IT
NanoDiode Italian User Committee on safe by design approaches for the development of antibacterial and cleaning products based on nanosilver
The Italian User Committee workshop brought together players operating along the entire value chain of nanotech-based products, and included researchers, technology developers, manufacturers, retailers, end-users (both professional users and CSOs representing end-users), regulators, consumer, to investigate and discuss safe by design approaches for the development of antibacterial and cleaning products based on nanosilver.
The User Committee was structured in a public session and a panel discussion (invitation only) to elaborate and debate on safe by design approaches to the research and innovation based on nanomaterials, and in particular nanosilver. About 50 delegates participates to the public part of the meeting, and 17 of them took part to the panel discussion.
A synthesis report on “Opinions and Recommendations for Safe By Design approaches ” has been drafted taking into account results of the event. The document has been reviewed by the experts of the panel discussion and a final version is now available on this webpage. A follow up meeting will take place in May 2015.
