Workshop Nanomedicine

[EVENT OVER] LNE is organizing a workshop on nanomedicines and nanomaterial-based medical devices on Monday November 13, 2023 in Paris, at the Mercure Porte de Versailles Expo - Vanves hotel.

The international standardisation roadmap for nanomedicine

Workshop nanomedecine 2023

Nanomedicine and nano-enabled medical devices therapeutics (defined here as nanotherapeutics) are innovative solutions for tackling several health challenges, by delivering therapeutic agents to specific targeted sites in a controlled manner. 
The international community recently started to work on the development robust and validated analytical methods, fit for purpose reference materials and formally recognised consensus standards for the assessment of their quality and safety.

Objectives of the day

The intent of the workshop is to:

  • share information on existing (pre)-standardisation initiatives ongoing at the European and international level (OITB, Euramet, VAMAS, EDQM, ASTM E56, ISO/TC 229, CEN/TC 352)
  • identify and prioritise specific measurement and standards needed to facilitate preclinical development and regulatory approval moving forward.

The workshop is co-sponsored by the 22HLT04-MetrINo project and the NanoMeasure France association.
