Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say


A simple glossary covering some fundamental definitions (nanoscale, nanomaterial, nanotechnology, quantum dot, etc.) and several instrument acronym (NMR, AFM etc.)


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.
