Global Safe-by-Design

‘Safe by Design’ – Global Validation of Manufactured Nanomaterials

AcumenIST Dr Steffi Friedrichs participated in a panel discussion on the topic of “Securing the NanoReg2 Legacy”, which formed the ultimate closure of the EU H2020 project NanoReg2.

Safe by Design represents the idea of early collaboration and conversation between innovators and risk assessors, so that both parties can preview the upcoming opportunities and challenges in an approach of shared responsibility.

Dr Friedrichs warned the audience not to misunderstand the concept of ‘Safe by Design’, because it was not a means to be ramping up the demand of risk assessment tests and procedures to an ever increasing complexity that ultimately prevented innovations from ever making it to the market. Safe by Design represents, in fact, the idea of early collaboration and conversation between innovators and risk assessors, so that both parties can preview the upcoming opportunities and challenges in an approach of shared responsibility.
