The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), on behalf of the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the Committee on Technology, National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) and in collaboration with the European Commission, will hold the 2015 ``EU-U.S.: Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts'' joint workshop on March 12-13, 2015, in Venice, Italy. The workshop will bring together the U.S.-EU Communities of Research (CORs), which serve as a platform for U.S. and EU scientists to share information on nanoEHS research. The six Communities were established in 2012 and are listed below. This workshopthe 4th since 2011is intended to further develop and support the CORs' activities. Exposure through the Life Cycle, with Material Characterization. Ecotoxicity Testing and Predictive Models, with Material Characterization. Predictive Modeling for Human Health, with Material Characterization. Databases and Ontologies. Risk Assessment. Risk Management and Control.
