The main objective of NANORIGO (NANOtechnology RIsk GOvernance) is to develop and implement a transparent, transdisciplinary and science-based Risk Governance Framework (RGF) for managing nanotechnology risks regarding
social, environmental and economic benefits. A new risk management approach is formed based on available and new high quality data and advanced scientific tools developed for industry and regulators decision-making, and on communication with all stakeholders (regulators, industries, politicians, the civil society). The RGF will use a life-cycle perspective and integrate available knowledge on ethical, social, environmental and economic concerns into a user-friendly format that can be easily adapted and transferred into regulation for hazard, exposure and risk assessment and management of nanomaterials. It will
consist of: (i) risk management strategies based on reinforced tools for guidance and decision-making developed for risk assessment, (ii) validated methodologies to identify potential hazard and exposure, and (iii) a web-based information and communication platform to facilitate access to good quality data and a clear understanding of risks for all stakeholders, and their valuable feedback.
