Nanosafety Cluster Compendium 2014

The NanoSafetyCluster has recently published the fourth edition of the Nanosafety Cluster compendium of European projects. It documents the status of important EU-funded projects on nanomaterial toxicity and exposure monitoring, integrated risk management, research infrastructure and coordination and support activities as well as regulatory-focussed research on nanosafety.


The compendium aims to showcase the exciting and important European-wide collaborative research being undertaken to ensure the safe implementation of nanotechnologies, and to act as a one-stop-shop for all stakeholders interested in acquiring an overview of current research activities. This years' compendium contains information on 30 active (or very recently finished) nano safety projects, including new entries describing the projects resulting from the last Framework Programme (FP) 7 call (e.g. eNanoMapper, NanoDefine and FutureNanoNeeds). It also includes presentations of several of the projects funded via the SIINN ERA-NET (INSTANT, NANOHETER and NanOxiMet), as well as two projects funded via the LIFE topic (SIRENA and NanoRISK). Updates from several of the NSC Working Groups are also included, outlining their progress to date and short-, medium- and long-term goals.
