Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

ENHRHES Final Report

The document is a comprehensive review of the health and environmental safety of four classes of nanomaterials: fullerenes, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), metals and metal oxide nanomaterials. The review considers sources, pathways of exposure, the health and environmental outcomes of concern, followed by a risk assessment based on this information. The report includes an illustration of state-of-the-art as well as on-going work, while identifying knowledge gaps in the field. Prioritized recommendations have been developed and set in the context of informing policy makers in the development of methods to address exposure as it relates to the potential hazards posed by engineered nanoparticles, and in the development of appropriate regulations.

ENHRHES

The ENRHES project (ENRHES = Engineered Nanoparticles - Review of Health and Environmental Safety) performed a comprehensive and critical scientific review of the health and environmental safety of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), metals and metal oxide nanomaterials.

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.
