NIA takes part in international collaborations to help build the nanotechnology ecosystem, particularly for industry.  It works throughout the value chain to ensure that development activities take into account industry needs for long term viability, building a balanced commercial environment for return on taxpayer investment into nanomaterials through publicly-funded research.


The Gov4Nano project will develop the first implementation of a future-proof operational Nano Risk Governance Model (NRGM) that addresses the needs of the trans­disciplinary field and innovative (and key enabling) character of nano­­tech­nology. WEBPAGE


The iCare project -  focuses on assessing the physical-chemistry characteristics of ANMC in complicated matrices and seeks to provide a robust and adaptable collection of sophisticated imaging technologies. The primary goal will be on an integrated model system to characterise and forecast how nanomaterials may affect brain health to prevent nanomaterial toxicity. WEBSITE


LEARN is an European Project meant to control and evaluate the quality of indoor air and the impact it has on children’s health. Its cornerstone is to learn about the state of quality indoor air in schools around Europe and the cognition impact it can suppose on children doing compulsory education. To do so we will use new scientific methods and state-of-the art equipment. WEBPAGE


The NanoHarmony project, funded through Horizon 2020, has the mission to support the development of Test Guidelines and Guidance Documents for eight endpoints where nanomaterial-adapted test methods have been identified as a regulatory priority. ​ WEBSITE


nanoPASS  will design cost-efficient high-throughput screening approaches for inhalation-related long-term hazards. It proposes a shift of testing focus from late endpoints to early key events leading to adverse outcomes. The real-life applicability of developed tests will be demonstrated by performing risk assessment in production and recycling facilities and devising a risk mitigation plan.


SUSNANOFAB will develop tools and methods to help the whole nanofabrication value chain including an open access digital platform that brings together a wide range of resources; integrated strategy articulating the whole value chain; and an EU wide strategic roadmap on nanofabrication. WEBSITE
