WG E: Safer by Design, Innovation and Regulation

Chair: Steve Devine (CPI)

Co-Chair: Andrea Haase (BFR)

Co-Chair: Cornelle Noorlander (RIVM)


Safe by Design, Innovation and Regulation working group integrates the proposed WG9 and WG10 and for the moment will have a single Chair, but could have a second chair for regulatory aspects in due course as they develop sufficient critical mass of activities. The proposal is to have one sub WG “Innovation” and the other subgroup on WG “Regulation”. It would make it easier to create a strong profile of the “new NSC” dedicating work to each of these two disciplines. SbD is a “tool” that underpins both of these activities.

If you would like to participate in the activities of WGE please contact Anastasios (Tassos) Papadiamantis (A.Papadiamantis@bham.ac.uk) or subscribe to the WG's mailing list here.

You can also visit the “Industrial Innovation Liaison (i2L)” subgroup, which is part in the NanoSafety Cluster as well as in the European Pilot Production Network as a cross-linking working group. This group is bringing together all nano-safety relevant experts from pilot-line/production projects, hence, real-life and application-oriented nanosafety and safe by design expertise.
