The National Nanotechnology Initiative’s planned Risk Workshop will facilitate stakeholder discussion of key elements needed to assess, manage, and communicate potential risks associated with use of nanomaterials and nanotechnology-enabled products. This one and a half day, 100 – 120 person public workshop will attempt to highlight practical tools that might be used by non-Federal decision makers in their consideration of potential risks, including quantitative and qualitative assessment and management methods.

This planned workshop will facilitate:
  • Understanding of the state of practice for the consideration of risk used by industry, academia, and the general public;
  • Analysis of the role of comparative risk assessment in these evaluations, including decision analysis tools and gap analysis tools;
  • Identification, through case study presentations, of stakeholder values and risk perceptions that inform their decision making, and the potential integration of these values and perceptions into a practical framework for risk communication;
  • Current risk management practices in the emerging technology communities; and
  • Determination of steps to improve the linkage of risk assessment to risk management and risk communication.
