The report on the 3rd SUN Stakeholder workshop, held on 6 October, 2016 in Edinburgh is now published
The current understanding of the environmental and health risks of manufactured nanomaterials (MN) is still limited, which may result in stagnation of nanotechnology innovation. The EU FP7 Sustainable Nanotechnologies (SUN) project is based on the idea that this knowledge can nevertheless guide nanomanufacturing to avoid liabilities if risk analysis is complemented by a sound socioeconomic analysis in an integrated approach addressing the complete product lifecycle. This is the main rationale behind developing the SUN user-friendly, software-based Decision Support System (SUNDS) for managing the environmental, economic and social impacts of nanotechnologies.
The aim of this workshop was to generate ideas for potential future uses of the SUNDS Decision Support System.
