In this newsletter we present an overview of the NANOSOLUTIONS project and explain in simple terms its main aims and objectives as a whole. We also speak to three work package leaders (Richard Handy, Dario Greco and Lang Tran) as a way of explaining the fundamental nature of the Engineered Nanomaterial Safety Classifier (ENM Safety Classifier), which is at the heart of the project. The three explain just what the classifier is, why it is needed and the experimental work taking place in the project that will ultimately deliver it.
As well as this, we have progress updates from different work packages, including Materials (WP3), Life-cycle analysis (WP4), ENM bio-nano interaction in biological media (WP5), Cell-models (WP6), and Disease models (WP8), and finally we will be taking a look at some of the upcoming NANOSOLUTIONS events on nanotechnology and nanosafety.
