BIORIMA Stakeholders’ Workshop
Tuesday 06 November 2018, 08:00am - 05:00pm

1st BIORIMA Stakeholders’ Workshop

Nanotechnology raises high expectations in healthcare applications such as nano-enabled Medical Devices (MDs) and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs), in particular to rapidly advance the efficacy of imaging, diagnosis and therapy. Academic and industrial research in this field is continuously growing in relevance, but has been mainly focused on technological developments, while the safety aspects have received less attention.

Together with the increasing investments observed in this sector, there is also a growing need to develop an efficient approach for assessing and managing all the potential risks of nano(bio)materials (NBMs) along all stages of their life cycle, to ensure and improve their overall safety and promote the long-term sustainability of new products.

This workshop will provide a unique opportunity to share and discuss views and needs of stakeholders involved in the development, marketing, evaluation and regulation of new NBMs. The BIORIMA project is developing an overarching framework for risk assessment and management of NBMs used in MDs and ATMPs that is based on regulatory requirements, industrial needs and state-of-the-art scientific approaches and tools. The purpose of this workshop is to engage relevant stakeholders in an interdisciplinary dialogue to foster the development of such a framework and to integrate their perspectives and priorities, so that a shared vision on risk management of NBMs can be achieved and promoted.

The main topics of the workshop will in particular include risk-benefit analysis, occupational and environmental risk assessment and management, strategies for risk prevention, control and monitoring (incl. safer product and process design).
