Nanotechnologies and Key Enabling Technologies in innovation processes: the NanoKey project for risk prevention in the workplace

The NanoKey Project is carried out by INAIL in collaboration with IIT and aims to implement the risk management tools from exposure to currently available nanomaterials and expand the field of application of analysis methods also in R&D contexts, production and use of nano- objects experimenting with a real Prevention-through-Design (PtD) approach in specific development scenarios for innovative nanomaterials and enabling technologies (KETs), with implications for responsible development and regulation. The seminar will be an opportunity to transfer the preliminary results of the project and provide points for discussion on the topic of PtD applied to nanotechnologies and KETs.
