NanoRoadMap (NRM) is a project founded by the European Commission in the FP6 (Thematic Priority 3) and its main objective is to produce a long term (10 years) forecasting exercise aiming to highlight the applications of nanotechnology in three important industrial fields: materials, health and medical services, energy.
The main objective of NANOS4 - Nano-structured solid-state gas sensors with superior performance - is a breakthrough in advanced micro and nano technologies for developing innovative metal-oxide gas sensing systems.
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.
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).
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.
This website, which has been developed under the FP6 European program Nanosafe2, is designed to prepare and host training activities, and communicate information about the potential risks of nanomaterials.
