Get ready for the future - Understanding new regulations for nano-enabled products

May 17, 2019 9:00 - 16:30 , CMU Geneva


Switzerland occupies a leading position internationally in the field of nanoresearch. But when it comes to transposing existing knowledge into practice and fully exploiting the application potential of synthetic nanomaterials, companies face numerous questions and hurdles – from the characterization of new materials and their safe handling to the continuous changes in national and international regulatory requirements.


By bundling the scientific and regulatory expertise available in Switzerland,, an initiative supported by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), aims to bridge this gap.



  • In this workshop you will learn all you need to know about the often very complex regulatory dispositions regarding the safety of nanomaterials or nanoenabled products in consumer goods, food, the health sector and the environment.
  • You will discover the practical implications of current and future regulatory framework dispositions (REACH/EFSA/MedTech).
  • You will get the opportunity to exchange your experience and to network with other Swiss companies.



SME’s, start-ups as well as established companies that are already working with novel nanomaterials or are planning to integrate nanotech into their production lines.



More details on the program will be available soon.


ABOUT is an independent national platform offering a unique service: by pooling the scientific and regulatory expert knowledge available in Switzerland on the safe handling of synthetic nanomaterials, it assists the transfer from invention to innovation and helps Start-ups as well as established Swiss companies to remain internationally competitive.



The workshop is free of charge.
