Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Nanosafety cluster overview

Compendium of European projects focusing on nanotechnology & safety (for the environment and for humans). There is a description of each project and summary of results. At the beginning of the project there is a useful matrix that matches “research themes” with “NanoSafety projects”.


NanoImpactNet was a multidisciplinary European network on the health and environmental impact of nanomaterials. NanoImpactNet aimed at creating a scientific basis to ensure the safe and responsible development of engineered nanoparticles and nanotechnology-based materials and products, and support the definition of regulatory measures and implementationof legislation in Europe.

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.
