MACRAMÉ Webinars on Harmonisation, Standardisation & Validation of Test- and Characterisation Methods

The MACRAMÉ to inform and train practitioners of advanced materials’ (AdMas’) safety and sustainability on and in topics pertaining to the harmonisation, standardisation and validation of characterisation- and test-methods of AdMAs.

Please follow this links below to find out more about each one of the webinars offered. 

Webinar I:
Standardisation and Validation made simple
Understanding the role of metrology and standardisation to answer the regulatory requirements for advanced materials and nanomedicines

Date & Time: 09. April 2024, 14:00 – 16:00 CEST

Metrology, method validation, standardisation … 

These concepts may sound complicated, but they are essential in analytical sciences. They strongly support the development of innovative products such as advanced materials or nanomedicine.

This webinar aims to help increase the impact of the protocols you are developing beyond the academic community and to get you updated on the new standards and reference materials on the horizon. … more …

Webinar II:
AOPs: A tool to include NAMs into regulatory testing?

Date & Time: 11. April 2024, 14:00 – 16:00 CEST

Regulatory safety testing of chemicals and materials is still mainly focused on animal testing. A huge number of New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) to replace or reduce animal testing have been scientifically developed within the last years. Their regulatory use, however, is still limited. A possible way to include NAMs into regulatory testing may be found in Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs). We will present what AOPs are, how they can be developed and established at OECD. The AOP for pulmonary fibrosis and the AOP on acute lung toxicity will serve as examples for the development of nanomaterial-relevant AOPs. We will discuss the implementation of AOPs into regulatory testing and hurdles. … more …

Joint Project Dissemination Meeting: MACRAMÉ - iCARE - nanoPASS

During the week of the 16. to 20. June 2025, the sister projects MACRAMÉiCARE and nanoPASS will hold a Joint 2-Day Project Dissemination Meeting back-to-back with the meeting of the OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (OECD WPMN).

During the Meeting, the three project aim to present their interim and penultimate results to various group of experts, including those attending the WPMN. The feedback received at that occasion will be considered during the finalisation of the relevant reports and legacy planning.
