OECD joint meeting: Sept 12-13

Nanotechnology experts from across the globe join forces to  advance nanomaterials safety testing through Grouping and Read Across 

September 12-13, 2018. Paris

Two European Horzon2020 projects, NanoReg2 and Gracious, brought together 120 nanotechnology specialists from Europe, North America and Asia at the OECD to address a bottleneck in nanomaterials (NM) development and testing, with experts from research, industry, regulation and policy taking part. You can find below the agenda and slides from the workshop.
