Nanotechnologies are considered as key enabling technologies. Their applications are based on effects arising from the promising properties and structure of the building blocks of nanomaterials. Sustainable development and implementation of these technologies demand:

  • Safe production and usage of nanomaterials
  • Detailed understanding of interactions between nanoobjects and living organisms
  • Knowledge transfer of scientific results to support socially relevant aspects


  • Safe by design
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Nanomaterials: effects and mechanisms
  • Quantification and detection of nanoobjects
  • Regulatory issues and long term studies
  • Environmental exposure pathways
