Deadline: (Deadline is established internally by the Commission/DG HR. Please check with your Permanent Representation/Diplomatic Mission of Non-Member Country to see if an alternate date preceding this date has been set.)
While last year JRC had to cancel the annual European Safeguards Research and Development Association (ESARDA) training course, this year the event went fully digital and the 19th edition was more successful than ever, with 150 participants from all over the world.
The JRC and DG Research & Innovation promote for the very first time the concept of 'Safe- and Sustainable-by-Design' in nanotechnology in order to support key European policy goals: the Green Deal, the Circular Economy and the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability.
Materials and products should be safe for humans and the environment and fit for a climate-neutral, circular and resource efficient economy. At the same time, they should have optimal properties and functionality through their life cycle.
