Risk Governance Models

caLIBRAte will establish a versatile next-generation nano-risk governance framework for assessment and management of human and environmental risks of manufactured nanomaterials (MN) and MN-enabled products. The framework will be founded on thoroughly tested models and stakeholder needs. The goal is that the quality and trust in the caLIBRAte nano-risk governance framework models will exceed the current level of most existing  REACH  tools.
The caLIBRAte framework will link different nano-specific models and methods into a system-of-systems (SoS), which companies, developers and authorities can use for risk assessment, prioritisation and management of occupational, consumer and environmental risks associated with production and use of MN or products containing MNs. The framework models will be aligned to support decisions along the research and innovation value chain, from basic research to market launch.

Join a user testing session

Are you involved in activities concerning R&D, production, marketing, use, risk assessment and management, inspection, insurance of nanomaterials and nano-related products?  Get involved and test one of the following models:
Nanosafer CB, Control Banding nanotool,  Stoffenmanager Nano, GUIDEnano, LICARA nanoscan, SimpleBox4Nano, (SB4N), Precautionary Matrix, SUNDs

Which model?

Testing methods

  • Individual remote sessions: receive guidance by a caLIBRAte expert, use the models in your daily work, and provide feedback online
  • Webinar: 60-90 minutes online and interactive discussion and specific models
  • Workshop: half day event, including training in risk governance and the models, and in depth testing on selected case studies 

Next step

Testing sessions will be held in the period February-March 2018.  Look at the scope, domains of application, key outputs of the model, and the planning of testing sessions in the online testing table and pre-register to indicate your interest in a session. 

Download the technical sheet with full details about each model and register below.
