VigilanceNanos - What role for public authorities?

What role for public authorities?

By AVICENN Team – Last Modified April 2022

The question of nanos – or the more general question of environmental health – was not constituted as a public policy in its own right. Governance is divided between European and national level, between assessor and risk managers and between public actors. 

This file explores the challenges of institutional governance of nanos, and gives an overview of the panorama in which the associations and bearers of “civil society” expertise evolve. It is bound to evolve, according to our work of monitoring, of synthesis and especially, of your contributions.  

A question, a remark ? This sheet produced by AVICENN is intended to be supplemented and updated. Please feel free to contribute.
