The EU FP7 NanoValid project (263147) was launched on 1st November 2011 followed by a kick off meeting, held in conjunction with the EU FP7 MARINA project, at the Universita Cattolica del Sacre Cuore in Rome 16th-18th November 2011. The project will run for four years with the aim of developing a set of reference methods and materials for hazard identification, risk assessment, and life cycle analysis of engineered nanomaterials.
The EU NanoSafety Cluster is a DG RTD NMPinitiative to maximise the synergies between the existing FP6 and FP7 projects addressing all aspects of nanosafety includingtoxicology, ecotoxicology, exposure assessment, mechanismsof interaction, risk assessment and standardisation.
CORDIS - Community Research and Development Information Service, is an information space devoted to European research and development (R&D) activities and technology transfer.
The main aims of CORDIS are:
- to facilitate participation in European research and take-up activities;
- to improve exploitation of research results with an emphasis on sectors crucial to Europe's competitiveness;
to promote the diffusion of knowledge fostering the technology take-up to enterprises and the societal acceptance of new technology.
Nanotechnology Now (NN) was created to serve the information needs of business, government, academic, and public communities. And with the intention of becoming the most informative and current free collection of "nano" reference material. We will cover: related future sciences, issues, news, events, and general information, and make this a place to come for information, stimulating debate, and research info.
QualityNano: the European Union-funded infrastructure for Quality in nanomaterials safety testing. This four year project integrates 28 top European analytical & experimental facilities in nanotechnology, medicine and natural sciences with the goal of developing and implementing best practice and quality in all aspects of nanosafety assessment.
