EU Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON)

The European Unions' Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) is a new initiative, funded by the European Commission (EC), which aims to provide better access to relevant and understandable information about nanomaterials both for European citizens and experts. The EUON was concluded to be the best tool to increase transparency on nanomaterials on the EU market. The EUON website is hosted and maintained by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). The EUON website provides information about existing nanomaterials on the EU market and offers interesting reading about the safety, innovation, research and uses of nanomaterials and is available in 26 different languages.
