The Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) is hosting a workshop on 'Grouping & Read-Across for Nanomaterials', to be held in Brussels (Belgium) on 26 Nov 2013. It will be followed by the Association's Annual General Meeting (attendance for NIA Members only).

Speakers invited to discuss the topics include:
