October 10, 2023 saw the publication of “A study on valid in silico modelling tools and read-across approaches, including creation of case studies on read-across for specific (types of) nanomaterials” by the European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON). This study examines read-across and in silico approaches as alternatives to traditional hazard and risk assessments for nanomaterials. The study finds 190 different models and approaches for hazard and risk assessment of nanomaterials, according to EUON. In addition, according to EUON, “three case studies were conducted to determine whether different tools and models are applicable to nanomaterial risk assessment, and several experts in the field of nanoinformatics were interviewed.” The study was commissioned by EUON and carried out by NovaMechanics Ltd. in Nicosia, Cyprus.
