The Horizon 2020 ProSafe project was a coordination and support activity for nanotechnology health and safety projects funded by the European Commission. Work Package 2 of ProSafe included a Foresight activity intended to explore the question of whether our risk management capabilities are on pace with the new uses for the technology. WP2 was lead by the Institute of Occupational Medicine.
An 4 step online Delphi Forum on whether risk management is on pace with innovation for nanomaterial uses was conducted by NeutralScience for the project working with SciPinion. 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.
