NANOMET & NanoHarmony hold online workshop on Test Guideline development for Nanomaterials

The NANOMET project run by the OECD joined NanoHarmony for its 3rd annual workshop. During the 2 half-day workshop, participants had the opportunity to hear updates from some of the OECD Test Guidelines being developed within NanoHarmony and related projects.

Two roundtables were also held to examine the development of Test Guidelines within OECD and transferring the lessons learned from nanomaterials to the next generation of advanced materials.The workshop was an opportunity for participants to share their experiences and expertise on developing OECD Test Guidelines with NanoHarmony and NANOMET to help develop best practice for the future.

The workshop had over 220 registrations with around 100 people tuning in each day.

You can watch the recording of the workshop on YouTube. As well, you can find below the detailed agenda with links to the presentations slides when available.
