The 2016 U.S.-EU: Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts joint workshop brought together the U.S.- EU Communities of Research (CORs), which serve as a platform for American and European scientists to share information on nanoEHS research. This was the 5th event in a series of joint nanoEHS workshops organized by the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative and the European Commission.
DATE: June 6-7, 2016
LOCATION: National Science Foundation, 4201 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, Virginia.
SCOPE: The purpose of the workshop was to further promote and deepen the U.S.-EU collaboration on nanosafety research. This workshop reviewed progress toward COR goals and objectives, clarified and communicated future plans, shared best practices, and identified areas of cross-COR collaboration. The workshop also featured a COR-led NanoEHS Scrimmage in which the communities collectively responded to a hypothetical spill of a nanotechnology-enabled product.
