(Nanowerk News) On September 10, 2009, the European Commission (DG Health and Consumers) organized in Brussels a Scientific Hearing on the risk assessment of nanotechnologies.
The main objectives of this Hearing have been to identify:

  • what are -according to current scientific knowledge- the main potential risks that could emerge from the use of nanomaterials in the future; and
  • provision of relevant background information and comments on those issues.
