Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Dissemination reports

The reports address some key question of nanomaterials safety like: “what is nanotoxicology?”, “are current protective measures adequate for nanomaterials?”, “have nanopowders have a higher explosion risk?”. There are eight reports available. The reports are short and easy to understand even by a non-specialised audience.

NANOSAFE2

The aim of NANOSAFE2 is to develop risk assessment and management for secure industrial production of nanoparticles. In NANOSAFE2 two different types of risks will be assessed: exposure during manufacturing processes (occupational exposure) and human health due to nanomaterial exposure. The risk assessments in the project will estimate whether and/or how much damage or injury can be expected from exposures to a given risk agent, and to assist in determining whether these effects are significant enough to require action (modification of production systems, regulations, etc.).

About nanopinion

  • nanopinion is an EC-funded project bringing together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we hope from innovation with nanotechnologies. The project is aimed citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, which are people who do not normally encounter and give their opinion nanotechnologies at first hand.
  • Dialogue is facilitated online and in outreach events in 30 countries presenting different participatory formats.
  • To promote an informed debate, we also run a strong press & social media campaign and offer a repository with more than 150 resources.
