NANORIGO is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme of the European Union. It is a collaboration between 27 partners and a coordinator from 14 different European countries and a global advisory board.

NANORIGO (NANOtechnology RIsk GOvernance) started on 1st January 2019. Coordinated by Aarhus University and involving 28 other partners from across Europe, this 50 month, €4.7 million project will develop and implement a transparent, transdisciplinary and active Risk Governance Framework (RGF) and establish the basis of a related Council (RGC)for manufactured nanomaterials and nano-enabled products. The RGF will bedeveloped through engagement with stakeholders across research, industry, regulation and civilsociety, and will be based on high-quality scientific data and tools for the physicochemical characterization of nanomaterials, and the assessment of exposure, hazard and risk for humans and the environment.

The NANORIGO consortium will work closely with the two other risk governance projects funded under the same NMBP-13-2018 call: RiskGONE and Gov4Nano, that are addressing the same goal, to ultimately ensure a sustainable and equitable RGF and RGC developed for nanotechnology in Europe.
