UBA report 01/2018

Beginning of January 2018, the German Environment Agency (UBA) has published a report summarising the contents and outcomes of the October 2017 scientific stakeholder meeting on nanomaterials in the environment.


The meeting focused on the regulatory relevant results of German and European research projects on nanomaterials in the environment. By this, it provided a forum for participants to present the state of the knowledge on environmental nanosafety in a regulatory context as well as to discuss the scientific results and their regulatory relevance between affected stakeholders.

The meeting included key note talks, invited platform presentations as well as poster presentations. A Knowledge Café provided the opportunity for participants to discuss selected topics with regard to environmental safety of nanomaterials in smaller groups. The meeting was closed with a discussion on the lessons learned highlighting the outcomes of the meeting from the perspectives of different stakeholders.
