ENM Safety Classifier Update

With data from all the partners now received, work has begun on the analysis and creation of predictive models. Dario Greco explains what has been done so far and how collaboration with external groups will help to validate the model’s effectiveness. We received most of the data from the partners by the end of 2016.

Laying the groundwork for guidelines in nanosafety

The safe and responsible use of engineered nanomaterials is hard to define without concrete systems indicating the risks. But nanosafety isn’t about restricting the use of nanomaterials, it’s about ensuring the production of safe products, human and environmental health and innovation in industry As a key enabling technology (KET) central to the future of European
