IRISS Workshop: Discover NICKEFFECT’s SSbD Approach

IRISS Workshop: Discover NICKEFFECT’s SSbD Approach

This Friday, November 10th, the NICKEFFECT project will be present at the IRISS online workshop, focused on the Safe-and-Sustainable-by-Design (SSbD) approach.


This workshop will showcase how Horizon Europe (HE) projects are adopting the SSbD approach and will foster collaboration among SSbD projects. The event will commence with presentations from IRISS, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the NanoSafety Cluster (NSC), and PARC, providing insights into the SSbD framework, the evolving SSbD roadmap at IRISS, and the ongoing development of the SSbD toolbox at PARC. Subsequently, HE projects, including NICKEFFECT, will present their SSbD implementation efforts, followed by a panel discussion featuring selected representatives, aimed at gathering input and suggestions for aligning and focusing SSbD efforts and IRISS support. 


Especially aimed at Horizon Europe projects that want or are implementing this approach, overall this workshop will serve to strengthen the impact of the SSbD community and also showcase best practices from different projects.


Representing NICKEFFECT will be Joséphine Steck, Chemical risk engineer and SSbD project manager in CEA, one of the main partners of our project, responsible for the Work Package “Decision Support Tool including sustainable by design approach”.


In the NICKEFFECT project, a modular decision support tool will be designed, developed, and implemented. The tools will facilitate the development of sustainable-by-design solutions leveraging a material modelling and machine learning module, and an LCA module. The heart of the system will be the materials and process information management system. The integration of the three main components will be realised through state-of-theart API technologies and workflow orchestration tools (in case of materials modelling). The web interfaces to expose the system functionalities will be developed and integrated in a single UI for smooth user experience. The tool will allow selecting materials based on both performance and the three main pillars that constitute the sustainable-by-design approach: Safety, Sustainability and Cost-effectiveness.


Don’t miss the opportunity to attend this online workshop and learn more about the NICKEFFECT project.


Tomorrow, from 9:00 AM CET access via the following Zoom link.
