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.
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.
As a EU FP7 "flagship" project, NanoValid has mobilized the necessary expertise and resources to adequately respond to the growing production and use of engineered nanomaterials in a multitude of technical applications and consumer products. The project will in particular address the question, if and how these new materials will increase exposure on humans and ecosystems.
