The caLIBRAte project has established a risk risk governance framework and web-based platform to support governance of existing and emerging manufactured nanomaterials and nano-enabled products.

Nano-risk governance guidance is supported by a selection of tested and calibrated risk assessment and management tools, as well as good practice and safety guidance and a horizon scanning tools.

Join the caLIBRAte webinar to understand how risk governance for nanomaterials has been addressed by the project and the scientific and advances delivered through the project for enhanced safe governance of nanomaterials in research and innovation.


  • Welcome and introduction to the agenda
  • Introduction to the caLIBRAte project; its main objectives and strategy and the caLIBRAte nano-risk innovation governance framework
  • Stakeholder risk perception and needs for nano-risk governance. Conclusions on how stakeholders perceive NMs and their needs for risk governance; with particular focus on R&D and Industry
  • Candidate tools considered for the caLIBRAte nano-risk innovation governance framework
    • Selection of tool candidates for HRA, with confirmation for the framework
    • Selecting tools candidates for ERA, with confirmation for the framework
  • Data for risk governance
    • Establishing a physicochemical and hazard data library suitable for tool testing
    • Establishing a library of high-quality exposure data suitable for tool testing
  • Qualifying tools through testing
    • HRA tools testing
    • ERA tools testing
  • Introduction to the caLIBRAte Nano-Risk Innovation Governance Framework
  • Peak into the web-based Nano-Risk Governance Portal
  • Q&A and Discussion

Who should attend?

If you are active within research, development or use of nanomaterials, you should attend this webinar to understand latest advances in governance and how you can work towards advanced risk governance.
The webinar is free to attend and all registered participants will receive slides from the meeting and have full opportunity for discussion on caLIBRAte outcomes and implications for your own work.
