Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation
27 – 29 June 2022
This event is co-organised by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the Ministry of the Economy, Finance and the Recovery and the European Commission.
IndTech is a flagship event in the European agenda, organised every two years by the European Commission in one of the countries holding the presidency of the Council of the European Union. Under the programme of Horizon Europe’s Cluster 4: “Digital, Industry and Space”, this event will mobilise key players in Europe and worldwide around the theme of the industrial technologies of tomorrow. IndTech aims to highlight the importance of this domain for European competitiveness and research as well as to illustrate the synergies between research and innovation initiatives, in particular through technological platforms and, since 2021, the industrial partnerships of Horizon Europe.
Industry’s dual green and digital transition will be the centre of discussion between researchers, industrial companies, start-ups, funding agencies and representatives from the Commission, as well as from French administrative bodies and other Member States. The event will also bring together young citizens and raise their awareness of the major transformations under way in industrial technologies throughout the European continent.
This event is co-organised by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI), the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the European Commission and the Ministry of the Economy, Finance and the Recovery (MEFR).

As tecnologias e os materiais emergentes colocam múltiplos desafios: podem surgir novas questões ambientais, de saúde pública e de segurança com o desenvolvimento de nanomateriais. O que está a ser feito para criar quadros mais transparentes para o desenvolvimento, aplicação e eliminação de nanomateriais fabricados?
Três projetos “irmãos” financiados pela Comissão Europeia, RiskGONE, Gov4Nano e Nanorigo, estão a centrar-se nestas questões, e promovem este workshop, que é dirigido a públicos com curiosidade e interesse em nanotecnologias e nanomateriais, para discutir como é que podemos melhor governar a sua produção e utilização.
Não perca este encontro, independentemente do que já sabe sobre nanotecnologias e mecanismos de regulação internacional, para aprender sobre a governação dos nanomateriais e partilhar connosco o seu ponto de vista!
O workshop de cerca de 90 minutos será realizado online e com a participação de especialistas da nanotecnologia envolvidos nestes três projetos. Abordaremos um modelo potencial para um Conselho de Governação de Risco e a forma de implementá-lo e tentaremos obter algum feedback dos participantes.
Veja aqui o nosso teaser!

Emerging technologies and materials pose multiple challenges: unforeseen environmental, public health and security questions may arise with the development of nanomaterials. Do you wonder what is being done to create more transparent frameworks for the development, application and disposal of engineered nanomaterials?
Three sister projects funded by the European Commission, RiskGONE, Gov4Nano and Nanorigo, are focusing on these issues. Co-facilitated by these projects, this workshop will engage with audiences that harbour curiosity and interest in nanotech and nanomaterials to discuss how we can better govern their production and usage.
Don’t miss our workshop, regardless of how much you know about nanotech and international regulation mechanisms, to learn about nanomaterials’ governance and share with us your point of view!
The 90 minutes workshop will be held online and with the participation of experts from nanotechnology implementing these three projects. We will address a potential model for a Risk Governance Council and try to grasp your feedback on a framework to implement it.

Draft School Agenda
A draft version of the school agenda is
NANORIGO was presented by Socieade Portuguesa de Inovação (SPI), one of the NANORIGO project partner which was invited to the EuroNanoForum 2019 (https://www.euronanoforum2019.eu/) as NANO2ALL project Coordinator to present the NANO2ALL (http://www.nano2all.eu/) project ROADMAP: FOR A MORE INCLUSIVE NANOTECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT IN EUROPE. The presentation was delivered by Dr. Olga Glumac, SPI consultant in the International Area under the Pillar 2 – NANO for People and within session 2.3 Nanotechnology for Society on June 12th in Bucharest, Romania.
Over the past decades, awareness has grown that the impact of technologies is not always predictable, and unintended or unforeseeable consequences might occur. This unpredictability is inherent in the increasing complexity of new and emerging technologies (including nanotechnology) and their development processes. Inclusive (societal engagement) approaches implemented under the terms of responsible research and innovation (RRI) can enable the identification and integration of inputs from stakeholders and the public into decision-making on research and innovation (R&I), contributing to the development of socially acceptable and desirable research and products.
NANO2ALL included diverse mapping and participatory activities (including citizen and multi-stakeholder dialogues across Europe) to explore what is required to foster the implementation of such inclusive approaches in nanotechnology development in Europe. NANO2ALL found that there are several conditions that have to be in place simultaneously in order to truly enhance societal engagement across nanotechnology R&I value chains. Outcomes from the mapping and participatory activities and the identified conditions were further explored through desk research and expert consultation. Key findings and recommended actions were developed into a roadmap. The recommended actions are to be undertaken by EU-level and national decision-makers for creating the necessary conditions for enhanced inclusiveness in nanotechnology R&I decision-making processes.
NANORIGO was presented as an example of on-going Horizon 2020 project that can be used as a platform to implement continuous societal engagement and trust building in Society as the project aims at developing and implementing a transparent, transdisciplinary and science-based Risk Governance Framework (RGF) and related Council for managing nanotechnology risks regarding social, environmental and economic benefits. The project will work closely with other two projects: RiskGONE (https://riskgone.eu/) and Gov4Nano (https://www.gov4nano.eu/).
