Responsible commercialization of new technologies requires leadership at the interface of science and business. For example, advances in materials and applications require a constant attention to the potential risks for the environment, health, and safety (EHS). The development of nanomaterials over the last fifteen years serves as a useful example of a framework for responsibly commercializing new technologies. This course will provide an overview of how to use a tiered-approach framework for identify and mitigating potential risks during the R&D and product development cycle, while also improving the leadership skills required to develop a culture focused on success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe a tiered-approach framework for nanomaterial environmental health and safety (nanoEHS) risk assessments
  • Apply scientific principles and strategic thinking to a tiered-approach framework case study of a new technology
  • Apply context to the identification of potential hazards and exposures
  • Identify the benefits of Life Cycle Analysis thinking
  • Determine, when using a tiered-approach framework, additional experiments are valuable
  • Identify common and advanced material science instrumentation
  • Identify best practices for measuring nanomaterials
  • Identify current trends in advanced materials research
  • Describe how to validate low cost in-process production measurements to ensure product safety and quality
  • Communicate more effectively on cross-functional teams
  • Identify lessons learned from risk assessments for improving or developing a quality management system
  • Identify approaches for creating a culture for success through inspirational leadership
  • Identify the product development lifecycle, and when and how EHS should become engaged to maximize product launch success

  • Product Development Managers
  • Manufacturing Managers
  • Operations Directors
  • R&D Directors
  • Safety or EH&S Officers
