The EU FP7 NanoDefine project together with pigments and fillers industry stakeholders Eurocolours and VdMI, is preparing an innovative workshop to discuss project developments that will benefit industrial end-users implementing EC recommendations on the definition of nanomaterial.

Launched in 2013, NanoDefine is establishing a novel 2-tiered approach including rapid, cost-effective screening and confirmatory measurement methods, and the "NanoDefiner”: an eTool that will guide end-users, including enforcement laboratories, in reliably ascertaining whether a material is nano or not.

The one-day workshop will enable stakeholders to identify critical issues and future priorities for size-related classification and standardized measurement of real-life materials. They will also discuss limitations and applicability of the developed methods as well as addressing key questions such as: "What methods seem most promising and feasible from an industry perspective?"
