On 10 September 2009, the European Commission (DG Health and Consumers)
organised in Brussels a Scientific Hearing on the risk assessment of
nanotechnologies. The presentations and reports are now available.
The main objectives of this Hearing were to identify:
- any possible scientific topics which have not been covered in the opinions
from the relevant EU Risk Assessment Committees and Bodies;
- what are - according to current scientific knowledge - the main potential
risks that could emerge from the use of nanomaterials in the future;
- provision of relevant background information and comments on those issues.
