An initiative under the EU's 6th Framework Program: The overall aim of NANOSAFE2 is to develop risk assessment and management for secure industrial production of nanoparticles.
The NanoSafe Australia network is a group of Australian toxicologists and risk assessors, who have formed a research network to address the issues concerning the occupational and environmental health and safety of nanomaterials.
The EU NanoSafety Cluster is a DG RTD NMP initiative to maximise the synergies between the existing FP6 and FP7 projects addressing all aspects of nanosafety including toxicology, ecotoxicology, exposure assessment, mechanisms of interaction, risk assessment and standardisation. Participation in the NanoSafety cluster is voluntary for projects that commenced prior to April 2009, and is compulsory for nano-EHS projects started since April 2009.
Twelve leading companies involved in the commercialization of carbon nanomaterials and products formed the NanoSafety Consortium for Carbon ("NCC") to address global legal, regulatory, environmental, health, and safety issues related to the responsible commercialization of their products.
NISE brings researchers and informal science educators together to inform the public about nanoscience and technology.
The NanoSci-ERA Consortium is a network of public or private bodies responsible for financing or managing research programmes in nanoscience that are established in countries belonging to the European Research Area (ERA).
A Design Study for a European Research Infrastructure enabling access to nanoscience, atomic precision and fine analysis with a unified metrology.

NanoSelect aims to design, develop and optimize novel bio-based foams/filters/membranes/adsorbent materials with high and specific selectivity using nanocellulose/nanochitin and combinations thereof for decentralized industrial and domestic water treatment. NanoSelect proposes a novel water purification approach combining the physical filtration process and the adsorption process exploring the capability of the nanocellulose and/or nanochitin (with or without functionalization) to selectively adsorb, store and desorb contaminants from industrial water and drinking water while passing through a highly porous or permeable membrane.
NANOSH is a EU-funded research project focusing on occupational exposure to nanoparticles and their health effects. The overall goal of the project is to delineate exposure and health effects of selected nano-sized particles relevant to the occupational environment.
In order to ensure that Spanish industry and R&D facilities play a key role in this field, the NanoSpain Network scheme aims to promote Spanish science and research through a multi-national networking action and to stimulate commercial Nanotechnology applications.
NANOSPIN is a Europeen commision projected bringing together 8 academic and industrial partners with a strong background in spintronic materials and devices, and comming from 6 Europeen member countries. The project aims at the development of novel multifunctional spintronic nanoscale devices whose mode of operation is designed to take optimum advantage of the specific magneto electric properties of ferromagnetic semiconductors.
The main objective of the NANOSTAR (Nano-Structured Ferrolectric Films for Tuneable Acoustic Resonators and Devices) project, supported by European Commission, is development of nanostructured ferroelectric films for microwave applications.
Nanostrand's overall goal is to roadmap future European standardisation activities for nanotechnology which relate to pre-normative research work in order to support European organisations to play an active role in worldwide development of nanotechnology standards.
This FP7-funded project has the objective of developing innovative solutions for the sustainable design, use, recycling, and final treatment of nanotechnology-based products.
The aim of this European research project is to investigate electrical transport in (single) elaborate molecular systems, which are interfaced to the macroscopic world by electric leads.
In the cluster of excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM), scientists from various research facilities in the Munich area in the fields of physics, biophysics, physical chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, biology, electronics and medicine work together with the goal of designing, producing and controlling a series of artificial and multifunctional nanosystems.
Nanotec IT (the Italian Centre for Nanotechnology) is an autonomous branch of AIRI (Italian Association for Industrial Research) whose primary objective is to become the national focal point for nanotechnology and contribute to make more effective the activities going on in the Country in this field so that these efforts could translate into a competitive advantage for the national industry.
