This two-day Conference brings together key thought leaders and actors from the global international community engaged in developing and testing new nanomaterials, nanoinformatics experts, and researchers engaged in read-across and QSAR work to discuss approaches for categorising next generation nanomaterials. In addition, the Conference will strategise on ways to achieve an international consensus on categorization using recent scientific results.

Progress towards consensus on the categorization of new and emerging nanomaterials

One projected Conference outcome is formulation of a roadmap for developing a consensus on categorization schemes for new and emerging nanomaterials. This roadmap strategy would involve identifying key actors; major milestones; a Framework for cooperation, coordination, and priority setting; and adoption of categorization schemes by groups interested in interactions of new nanomaterials, especially those involving biological and environmental situations.
