FutureNanoNeeds Conference on Categorisation of Next Generation Nanomaterials

November 30 – December 1, 2017

Brussels, Belgium

Cover story: Towards a classification strategy for complex nanostructures. Castagnola et al., Nanoscale Horizons (2017), 2, 187-198

Future generations of nanomaterials will be increasingly innovative and sophisticated in their shapes, forms, features, and characteristics. This will lead to an ever-growing richness in virtually every application area but also, bring uncertainty to predictions of nanomaterial performance and impact. As a result, effective outcome and risk analysis of nanomaterial use will require a systematic approach to the categorisation of nanomaterials.

The FutureNanoNeeds Conference on Categorisation of Next Generation Nanomaterials will review current practices and issues in categorisation with an aim to reach an international consensus on a strategy that meets the defined goals and needs of the global nanomaterials community. Participants will have the opportunity to attend talks from invited speakers, group and panel discussions and informal networking sessions.
