EU US Roadmap Nanoinformatics 2030 | Open for commenting until the end of 2017
The Nanoinformatics 2030 Roadmap is a compilation of state-of-the-art commentaries from multiple interconnecting scientific fields combined with issues involving nanomaterial (NM) risk assessment and governance. As illustrated in Figure 1, the scientific fields represented include: materials science/physico-chemical characterization; ecotoxicology & human toxicology (including systems biology approaches); computational modeling; and informatics. Each has its own history, precepts, test methods, analytical tools, metadata forms, ontologies and criteria for interpreting experimental results. Additionally, each has its own research community.
The Nanoinformatics Roadmap adds a separate consideration, namely, capturing the formal environment, health and safety (EHS) data requirements, e.g. good laboratory practice, related to regulatory assessments and governance. Coordination of future research effort and a shared vision, rather than programmatic direction, is the Roadmap’s role.
