CEN Workshop Agreement "Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Framework"

The scope of the Workshop is the definition of a Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Framework (SNF) for sustainability management in nanomanufacturing processes. It sets up the basic requirements to assess the sustainability of a nanomanufacturing plant, allowing drafting improvement plans and monitoring the degree of progress of the nanomanufacturing plant. 

The SNF model deploys the three traditional Sustainability Dimensions (SDs): social, environment and economy. Each SD is divided into several sustainability items (SIs). The SNF allows to diagnose the starting position of a nanomanufacturing plant with respect to the SNF model, at two levels: 1) Sustainability management practices and 2) associate KPIs to measure results. The result of the diagnose is used to elaborate the corresponding sustainability Improvement Plan for the nanomanufacturing plant.  


The SNF is used to monitor the progress of sustainability in the PL through a customizable dashboard (two radar diagrams, Management and KPIs), which allows intuitive visualization of the starting values and the proposed improvement values improvement baseline) for the period considered, as well as their evolution over time. 


The deliverable of the Workshop will be a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) on a Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Framework. 


The Workshop is being established in the frame of the OASIS OITB R&I project, funded by H2020 EC funds. OASIS has already produced a deliverable defining a Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Framework, which will be the basis of the Workshop and the CWA. 


The kick-off meeting will be held on Wednesday, 12 January 2022, from 9.00-12.00 CET as a web meeting. People interested to participate in the kick-off meeting can contact fmachicado@une.org.


All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft Project Plan to the Workshop secretary, Mr. Fernando Machicado (fmachicado@une.org), by 23 December 2021. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below.
