NanoSafety Cluster Newsletter 05/2015

The European NanoSafety-Cluster (NSC) has recently published the Spring 2015 issue of its newsletter outlining recent NSC news, working group reports, resources, up-coming events and research opportunities. The issue focuses on describing some of the major collaborations in the NSC community, ahead of the next NSC meeting that was held as part of the SENN 2015 - International Congress on Safety of Engineered Nanoparticles and Nanotechnologies in April 2015 in Helsinki.


Within the newsletter it was announced that the NanoSafety Cluster Compendium 2015 will be published during the week ending April 17th 2015 and made accessible via the NanoSafety Cluster website. The compendium will showcase the important European-wide collaborative research being undertaken to ensure the safe implementation of nanotechnologies, and acts as a one-stop-shop for all stakeholders interested in acquiring an overview of current research activities.


The complete newsletter (PDF, 2 MB) is available for download via


The NSC Newsletter link is sent out quarterly to over 70,000 people, targeting all NSC project partners and relevant stakeholder groups across the globe, including researchers, industrialists, policy-makers, regulatory and standardisation bodies, SMEs and NGOs, and the wider general public. Suggestions for content and any feedback can be sent via E-Mail to Lesley Tobin (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
