New Solutions to Support the Monitoring of the Concentration of Engineered Nanomaterials in Indoor Workplaces and Urban Areas. Lessons from LIFE NanoMONITOR

NanoMONITOR 3rd Stakeholders’ Day

5 July 2017

Porto Palace Conference Centre & Hotel, Thessaloniki, Greece


NanoMONITOR 3rd Stakeholders’ Day will be held as a special session in the framework of the Nanotexnology 2018: International Conference on Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies (Workshop 2) on 5th July 2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Workshop purpose

This workshop is a forum for nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators to present and discuss the use of measured data on the concentration of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) to support the risk assessment of nanomaterials and the implementation of safe exposure scenarios, guaranteeing a high level of protection of the human health and the environment.

The workshop program focusses on the main progress and outcomes of the NanoMONITOR project, which provides scientific-based solutions to support the risk assessment of nanomaterials on a regulatory basis, including critical issues such as environmental, occupational and consumer exposure to ENMs, environmental release and fate in the life cycle and product value chains, and human health impacts of ENMs.

The overall aim of the project is the development of a prototype system to generate robust, accessible, comparable and interoperable environmental and indoor air monitoring data to support the implementation of REACH regulation. A new solution to support data processing, the monitoring and sampling of the concentration of ENMs in indoor workplaces and urban areas have been carried out.

The monitoring station prototypes combine remote sensing devices, filtering elements and data transmissions elements, processing and sending the station’s data to our NanoMONITOR data acquisition software and visualization platform, which is available for free download. This first prototype, as well as the main outcomes of the project concerning the concentration of ENMs on workplaces and urban areas will be presented.

Target audience

Target audience and key stakeholders are:

  • Health and safety advisors
  • Occupational hygienists
  • Workers and professional users who use ENMs as such, in mixtures or incorporated into articles in research or production processes
  • Researchers
  • Experts from industry associations and other stakeholder organizations informing companies about the requirements for the safe handling and use of ENMs on a regulatory basis, especially for risk control purposes
  • Experts from standardisation.

Benefits from participating

This workshop is designed for experts in air quality, occupational hygienists, as well as workers and professional users who are interested in learning more about current technologies to measure the concentration of ENMs in indoor workplaces and urban environments.

This workshop will promote the proper use of ENMs and the uptake of nanotechnology by the industry by providing attendees with up to date information to support risk assessment, as well as recommended approaches to assist companies on the evaluation of the exposure to ENMs on a regulatory basis.

Moreover, participants will have access to a satellite station developed under the scope of the project. Attendees will be invited to use the satellite station and validate its operability and functions.
