WORKSHOP: NanoSafety: State of Art of Italian Partnership in NANoREG Project and the Link with ProSafe Coordination Action, 2015_11_26, Bologna, Italy

The Italian partnership within the FP7 NANoREG project encompasses 5 partners (CNR, ENEA, IIT, ISS, VN) and 3 third parties (UniTO, UniTorVergata, INAIL), committed in different activities that cover all the project pillars. The Ministero della Salute acts as National Coordinator. We present here some results obtained and the challenges encountered during the first 24 months. ISS and VN are also involved in the ProSafe Coordination Action that will utilize many of the results produced by NANoREG and other NanoEuropean activities (FP7 projects and OECD Sponsor Programme).

Background Information:

Consumer acceptance of nanomaterials and their products depends on a high level of public awareness regarding health and safety issues. This Seminar focuses on the current progress and status of work to integrate Safe-by-Design into the development and manufacture of nanomaterials and nano- products.

The SIINN Era Net consortium for "Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" explains the new "Consolidated Framework for EHS of Manufactured Nanomaterials" and presents the results of some SIINN projects.

The NANoREG Guidance Document gives a specific description of selected nanomaterials, the dispersion protocols to be used for their characterization, as well as the minimum requirements to be applied for the in vivo, in vitro and eco-toxicological studies in NANoREG.

Uncertainties and risk potential will be identified at an early stage and can be reduced by alternative solutions based on NANoREG’s Safe-by-Design concept, which can be applied to all or parts of the innovation process of nanomaterials and nano inspired products.

PROSAFE will – beside other objectives - facilitate and promote the acceptance of Safe by Design in industry’s innovation processes by launching common calls and twinning of projects.

Time: 2014.11.05, 1.30-5p.m.
Location: Rotterdam, Netherlands
Organizers: NANoREG

With this second NANoREG workshop, we started a series of events to discuss and elaborate a regulatory system, which incorporates the flexibility of keeping pace with innovation by allowing for continuing innovation within its own architecture. Due to the fact that this issue has caused much controversy, we decided on relevant scenarios that cover the topic. The scenario with the highest acceptance by Regulators and industrial innovators will guide NANoREG’s future activities on safe innovation.

(May 2015)
Data management and a harmonised approach to handle meaningful and comparable data are a key success factor for the assessment of the quality and reliability of methods, as well as for an effective and responsible use of nanomaterials (NMs).

The Investigation/Study/Assay (ISA) tab-delimited (TAB) format (www.isacommons.org) has also been identified as a suitable system for data logging and exchanging of complex metadata concerning nanomaterial. NANoREG has produced a set of easy-to-use 'templates'. The templates have been built by experts in different fields (phys-chem, in vivo and in vitro toxicology) and are aimed at harmonising the logging of experimentally-produced data, and include meaningful and detailed information to support causal correlation analyses, modelling and Safe-by-Design (SbD).
 
Objectives and 'take home messages'
  • NANoREG provides these templates freely to the nanomaterial environmental, health and safety (nanoEHS) community, as jump start towards the harmonisation, sharing and linking of data. This achievement will impact nanoEHS data management at European level, and possibly beyond.
  • The template files are public and free to use and adapt (see license below).
  • Data logging can be an easy task, provided that the right balance between real scientific needs ('need-to-record') and effort put by experimentalists into logging is found.
 
Please download the templates in our download area.

ProSafe project invites experts to a Delphi Forum on whether risk management is on pace with nanotechnology innovation

European Horizon2020 project ‘ProSafe’ has launched an online Delphi Forum on whether risk management is on pace with innovation for nanomaterial uses. Expert discussion between those working with manufacture and health and safety of specific nanomaterial uses will be used to develop a white paper proposing a path forward for risk management policies for nanomaterial uses. To join the forum, please follow the instructions below:

  • Follow this link https://scipinion.com/
  • In the access code box for "ProSafe Delphi Poll” please insert “Prosafe2015” as the Access Code and click ‘take survey’
  • Then enter your email address to enter the poll and you will receive an email to confirm and set up a user account. With a user account you can return to the survey if you need to leave in the middle, or if you want to come back later and revise your entries or see progress as more people respond.

The Delphi forum will include a panel review of the discussion so far at the Society for Risk Analysis in early December so the project team are looking to gain as much input as possible before the 30th November. The material classes considered in the Delphi forum are titanium dioxide, silicon dioxide, cerium oxide, barium sulphate, silver, and carbon nanotubes.
You can read more about the project on the ProSafe website.

Fluorescent silica nanobeads that are widely used by the NANoREG project have now been made available by NIA Member HIQ-Nano. The nanoparticles were initially provided by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT).

The highly bright fluorescent nanobeads provided to the NANoREG project enable, according to the company, superior imaging; they are also biocompatible, come in different sizes and colours, and are stable in aqueous solutions and biological media. More specifically, they are:

  • Tunable size from 25 to 250 nm, with high degree of size and shape monodispersion
  • Available with blue, green, yellow and red fluorescence emissionHighly bright and photostable thanks to the exclusive synthetic route
  • Tunable surface chemistry (e.g., carboxylic, amino, sulphonic acid groups)
  • Biocompatible material; they have been tested both in vitro and in vivo
  • Suitable for super-resolution fluorescence microscopy (STED)
  • Accurately characterized (each batch is characterized through TEM, SEM, DLS, Zeta-Potential and spectroscopy)
  • Guaranteed sterile
  • Available in water or as dried powder
  • Available endotoxin-free

HiQ-Nano is involved in the ‘design, synthesis and characterization of high-quality nanoparticles for research and industrially-oriented applications’. Their products include gold, silver and silica nanoparticles, fluorescent nanobeads, and custom nanomaterial creation. The company is now looking to aid other businesses with its products.
