Advances in Nanomaterial Human and Environmental Hazard Assessment Methods
As one of its final dissemination activities, PATROLS will be holding a stakeholder workshop to showcase the tools and advanced methods that have been developed within the project. The workshop will highlight the nanomaterial characterisation in biological systems and in silico hazard models and the advanced in vitro human tissue models and ecotoxicity testing systems that the project has developed and to help stakeholders from industry, regulatory bodies and policy makers understand how they can access and use these methods and tools in their work.
PATROLS has been working to help deliver better models and test methods that can be used to help address concerns over the use of animals in chemical testing and to provide quicker and efficient tests that are accessible for use in industry. The project is well positioned to help deliver some of the key components of the European Commission's chemicals strategy for sustainability and project outcomes will be able to address some of the key components to deliver safe and sustainable chemicals. The workshop will be an opportunity for stakeholders to understand the key developments that have been achieved within PATROLS, to be guided through some of the models, tools and methods that have been developed within the project and how these can be accessed by stakeholders for their own use. The workshop will be held online in conjunction with NanoTox 2021, but free for all stakeholders to attend as well. The workshop will held as a virtual event on 19 April 2021.
