Sound tasty? Our NanoImpactNet adventure officially came to an end on 31 March 2012.
Many thanks for all your encouragement and support over the last four years, and for sending us your events and news. Please do not stop!
NanoImpactNet is now winding down and writing its final scientific reports. NanoImpactNet’s database of protocols will shortly be passed on to the QNano Research Infrastructure project and continue to expand within the European Commission’s NanoSafety Cluster group of projects into the future.
European Network on the Health and Environmental Impact of Nanomaterials
NanoImpactNet has been a multidisciplinary European network on the health and environmental impact of nanomaterials. NanoImpactNet has created a scientific basis to ensure the safe and responsible development of engineered nanoparticles and nanotechnology-based materials and products, and has supported the definition of regulatory measures and implementation of legislation in Europe.
It has focused on a strong two-way communication to ensure efficient dissemination of information to stakeholders and the European Commission, while at the same time input from the stakeholders about their needs and concerns was obtained.NanoImpactNet members core groupd consisted of 24leading European research groups active in the fields of nanosafety, nanorisk assessment and nanotoxicology. Through numerous workshops over a period of four years, NanoImpactNet has brought together some of the best researchers to discuss future strategies, to exchange their ideas with the different stakeholder groups and to further the responsible development of nanotechnology.
NanoImpactNet has also collected research protocols from the various FP6 and FP7 projects.
