The plenary session was followed by a panel discussion with five speakers: Steffi Friedrichs (NIA), Andrej Kobe (DG Environment), Hartwig Muhle (BUND), Aida Ponce (ETUI), Michael Riediker (NanoImpactNet). These speakers represented the main categories of stakeholders: EU risk assessors and policy makers, scientific community, professional federations representing companies, NGOs. The discussions focused on two topics: first, on the technical and scientific aspects of the results, and second, on knowledge transfer and dissemination of these results (both on technical aspects but also regarding relevance for policy making).
