Improving the properties of cosmetic products, optimizing manufacturing processes or even obtaining packaging with advanced properties, the unique properties of nanomaterials offer many possibilities. But the media context, regulatory instability, the potential risks associated with some of these substances and the difficulties of reliable characterization are all obstacles to the serene development of these applications. LNE proposes a technical day on 29 March to better understand the challenges of the market.
To meet the challenges and problems that mark nanomaterials, and to promote responsible innovation, it is necessary to be able to reconcile their real added value for a given application and the various risks that can be associated with them. It is within this framework that LNE, Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d'Essais, is proposing a technical day to cover the theme in a transversal way in order to better understand the challenges of the market. Possible applications, regulations including labelling requirements, the current state of knowledge on risk assessment at consumer, worker and environmental level as well as an overview of available measurement capabilities will be on the agenda. Feedback and question-and-answer sessions will give a better idea of the subject and the questions shared by the actors in the sector.
