CarboBreak KickOff Meeting
End of February 2019, the Sächsisches Textilforschungsinstitut e.V. (STFI) hosted the kick-off meeting of the BMBF CarboBreak project. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the new funding measure "NanoCare 4.0 - application-safe material innovations". The aim of the project is to improve the understanding of the fracture behaviour of carbon fibres and to investigate the release behaviour of alveolar fragments from the fibres and fibre composites produced from them through mechanical stress.The STFI is coordinator...

The JRC, in close collaboration with researchers from the French CEA, Swiss EMPA, US NCI-NCL and Irish Trinity College, has developed a common strategy for measuring the particle size distribution of nanomedicines. A quick preliminary step to assess sample integrity and stability by low resolution techniques is followed by the combination of complementary high resolution sizing measurements performed both in simple buffers and in complex biological media.Read more in the erspective review artcile (open access):F.

Beginning of May 2019, the new website of the SimplyNano project  went online. The project offers interested teachers and partners a contact point for information and questions about SimplyNano, the experimental kits and related documents. The SimplyNano project was launched in 2012 by the SimplyScience Foundation and the Innovation Society with the creation and production of the first experimental case SimplyNano 1. Due to the great success and the positive feedback, the SimplyNano 2 was developed. It has been used in schools since 2017. The canton of Aargau...

New DaNa article on risk assessment of nanomaterials
To estimate the potential hazard of nanomaterials a risk assessment is needed. How to determine the concentration of nanoparticles, which are difficult to detect? Why is modelling the method of choice and how does it work? The new article about “Estimating the occurrence of nanomaterials in the environment” gives you an overview about exposure modelling.
