A scientific stakeholder meeting on Nanomaterials in the Environment will take place on the 10th and 11th October 2017 at the UBA Headquarters in Dessau-Rosslau, Germany. The meeting is hosted by UBA and financed by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.

The meeting focusses on regulatory relevant results of German and European research projects on nanomaterials in the environment which are carried out or finalised in the current years.

The meeting will give a forum to present the state of the knowledge on environmental nanosafety to risk assessors as well as to discuss the  scientific results and their regulatory relevance between affected stakeholders. Therefore, this meeting addresses representatives of science, industry, risk assessors, regulatory experts, and NGOs.

It will include key note talks,  invited plattform presentations as well as poster presentations on results of national and European scientific projects on nanosafety. A Knowledge Café will provide the opportunity to discuss selected topics with regard to environment relevant legislation in smaller groups. The meeting will be closed with a discussion on the lessons learned highlighting the outcomes of the meeting by the views of different stakeholders.

The meeting is anticipated for a maximum of ~ 100 participants. The registration opens at 30 April 2017.
