Nanomaterial Regulation – A Driver or Barrier for Nanotechnology Innovation?

29 April 2021
Tid: 13.00 – 14.30
Plats: Online

In 2020, new EU regulation concerning nanomaterials came into application. Now manufacturers and importers of nanomaterials or products containing nanomaterials need to comply with a number information requirements – some of which seem challenging to fulfil.

Welcome to an online panel discussion between researchers, companies and the European Commission on the potential and limitations of current nanomaterial regulation. Is the current regulation a driver or hindrance to new and novel innovation in nanotechnology?

We present an overview of the availability of methods to use for fulfilling the new nano-specific information requirements, and discuss questions relating to challenges for companies to use nanomaterials and the need for safety standards.

Keynote speaker Andrej Kobe from the European Commission will present his view on European nanomaterial regulation and challenges that researchers in the Mistra Environmental Nanosafety programme, led from Lund University, may help to address.


  • Maria Bille Nielsen, the Technical University of Denmark
  • Anna Stenstam, CEO, CR Competence
  • Andrej Kobe, the European Commission

Moderator: Steffen Foss Hansen, the Technical University of Denmark.
