December 4th REFINE & GOV4NANO Coordination Meeting Utrecht, The Netherlands
Meeting date: 4th December 2019 venue: Utrecht. The coordinators and community bridging partners of the two HORIZON 2020 projects REFINE and GOV4NANO met during the projects’ General Assembly and Regulatory Risk Analysis Summit in Utrecht to discuss common ground and connection points for a future collaboration. As both projects aim to develop a framework either for Regulatory Science for nanobiomaterials (REFINE) or for Nano Risk Governance (GOV4NANO), we identified many complementary topics. The projects can fertilise each other since both aim to identify regulatory (REFINE) or transdisciplinary knowledge gaps (Gov4Nano) in the field of nanotechnology and want to build a cross-community network. We are looking forward to further collaboration.
