June 21, 2023


The 6th EU-Asia Dialogue on NanoSafetywill be held on 21st of June 2023 in Berlin, Germany.

The “international network initiative on safe and sustainable nanotechnology” (INISS-nano) is focussing on the collaboration in different fields pertaining to nanotechnology research in general and nano-safety research in particular. This shall  include collaboration in terms of e.g., training, standardisation efforts, test-guidelines development, metrology, commercialisation, ethical aspects, responsible science and research, sustainability, and joint research, supporting governance, regulatory guidance, and of course being open for further joint working items.

The underlying concept paper (Falk et al. 2022: https://zenodo.org/record/6818049#.Y8fX8HbMJaQ ) which is a revision of the first version (published in June 2021), shows descriptions and an action plan for each of these pillars:

  • Harmonization
  • Support industrial understanding
  • Sharing / facilitate sharing of resources / infrastructures
  • International collaboration on ethical and societal aspects of nanotechnology


INISS-nano with the EU NanoSafetyCluster, the Asia Nano Forum and a local host, are co-organizing the annual “EU-Asia-Dialogue on NanoSafety”, a globally open communication event. Within this event, the progress of the actions planned in the INISS-nano-initiative is discussed, and further plans are made around a specific topic, which is put in the focus of the dialogue. For the 6th Edition of the EU-Asia-Dialogue, the following topic was selected: “The role of characterisation and how it is addressed in INISS-nano”.
