NSC Compendium 2015

The NanoSafetyCluster has recently published the fifth edition of the Nanosafety Cluster compendium of European projects. It contains information on all running or recently completed projects funded under the Seventh Framework Programme FP7, information on the 1st H2020 nanosafety projects and updates from the NSC Working Groups whose aim is to support collaboration and knowledge-sharing across the nanosafety projects. Information on older projects can be found in the previous editions.

 

As FP7 ends and Horizon2020 begins in earnest, the focus on nanosafety and responsible innovation continues, with significant investment throughout FP7 and beyond. About fifty nanosafety projects were funded under FP7, many of which are completed, but about 15 will continue well into 2017 producing important data and knowledge regarding the safe design of nanomaterials. The first H2020 projects are just about to start (September 2015) and three are also presented in the 2015 Edition of the NSC Compendium. The focus is shifting towards supporting industry, commercialisation and regulation, and addressing the major gaps that still exist, primarily in terms of prediction of impacts and read-across from existing materials to emerging ones.

Spotlight Research

In September we would like to present a paper of the BMBF project Fe-Nanosit. The project dealt with the use of iron-containing nanomaterials in groundwater and wastewater remediation. A comprehensive assessment and weighing of benefits and possible environmental risks resulting from the application is now presented by the project partners in this paper.
