Key Points

  • Research priorities for specific engineered nanomaterials were obtained using a Comprehensive Environmental Assessment (CEA) case-study approach that engaged stakeholders with diverse technical/organizational perspectives in a transparent collective judgment process known as Nominal Group Technique.
  • Lists of research priorities for nanoscale titanium dioxide and nanoscale silver developed through the CEA approach are presented in the context of illustrating and examining the methodology employed, including two US EPA-sponsored workshops.
  • Procedural refinements include: emphasizing breakout group interactions, identifying broad information priorities before deriving more detailed research questions, providing clear guidelines for research question development, and using rating rather than ranking prioritization methods.
  • This work can help inform future research planning efforts using a structured decision-support approach not only for nanomateria
