    BIORIMA Webinar - Thursday 15th October
    Integrated Risk Management

    We're delighted to invite you to take part in a free, interactive webinar this Thursday 15th October at 10.00-11.00 or 16.00-17.00 (CEST) in which we will explain the background of the BIORIMA project and the purpose, principles and potential applications of the Integrated Risk Management framework and the Decision Support System we are developing.

    About the webinar:
    These short sessions will provide an opportunity for you to find out more about the EU-funded BIORIMA project and how you and manufacturers and users of Nano-Biomaterials (NBM) and associated Medical Devices (MD) and Advanced Therapeutic Medicinal Products (ATMP) can benefit from its output and results.

    To evaluate the performance of the IRM framework, we have prepared a short real-time questionnaire to find out from you and other participants about the need for this type of IRM framework and DSS, and how you envisage applying such a specific tool in your daily research and/or business, for example, to improve internal processes or to comply with existing regulatory demands.

    Webinar Agenda:
    Welcome to the Webinar (5 mins)
    Introduction to the BIORIMA project (10 mins)
    Integrated Risk Management (IRM) remote validation (20 mins)
    Conclusions and remarks (10 mins)
    End of the webinar

    We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!

  • Environmental hazard testing of nanobiomaterialsDateThu Sep 03, 2020 4:33 pm
    Topic by Lesley. Forum: Publications

    The European Medicines Agency (EMA) regards the potential risks of human medicinal products to the environment
    and their impacts are assessed, as well as management to limit this impact. Hazard assessment of novel materials,
    which differ from conventional chemicals, e.g. nanobiomaterials, poses testing challenges and represents a work in-
    progress with much focus on the optimization of required methodologies. For this work-in-progress, we here
    highlight where changes/updates are required in relation to the main elements for international testing based on
    OECD guidelines, supported by knowledge from the nanotoxicity area. The outline describes two major sections,
    nanobiomaterials and environmental hazards, including its challenges and learned lessons, with recommendations
    for implementation in OECD guidelines. Finally, the way forward via a testing strategy is described.

    “BIORIMA* activities are progressing successfully! The mid-term report on activities gives us full confidence in the project's ability to achieve the ambitious goal of providing an Integrated Risk Management framework for nano-biomaterials (NMB) used in advanced therapy medicinal products and medical devices.” Essentially, this is a summary of the General Assembly meeting which took place in Rome on November 5-6th at the CNR premises (National Council of Research, a partner in BIORIMA and the local organizer of the meeting).

    All workpackages are progressing in line with timescales, including the development of tools for materials characterization, fate and exposure analysis, testing for human and environmental hazard, risk assessment and management, considering the whole life cycle of NBM: from production, to use, up to disposal.

    On November 7th, immediately after the General Assembly meeting, the first BIORIMA decision support system (DSS) prototype was shown to a group of stakeholders from industry and regulatory institutions during the second “BIORIMA Stakeholder Workshop” at the premises of Università Tor Vergata (in Rome) - a partner in BIORIMA. Fruitful discussions with stakeholders confirmed that BIORIMA is committed to delivering an integrated risk management framework which is tailored to industry users and their needs, as well as being in line with regulatory demands.

    The next key events and dates for the public are: the third BIORIMA training school, 2020. This will be organized together with other 6 EU-funded projects and take place during March 22-27th); and the General Assembly meeting with a public stakeholder workshop, which will take place later in the year in Venice.
