Workplan and workpackages

NanoSustain is structured and organized around 6 different Work Packages (WPs), each with distinct objectives, tasks, deliverables and milestones.


Project management and scientific-technical coordination

Leader: NOMI


Data gathering, generation, evaluation and validation

Leader: VN


Hazard characterization and impact assessment

Leader: NRCWE


Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Prospective Technology Assessment (UniHB)

Leader: UniHB


Exploration of new solutions

Leader: VTT


Dissemination and exploitation of results

Leader: ION

Although each individual WP has its own focus, they closely interact with and complement each other, and create a holistic approach to address the complexity and interdisciplinary nature of the project. A bottom up approach will be used, which makes that all parts become increasingly linked together starting from a lower level (primary data evaluation, hazard characterization testing, impact assessment) in the beginning of the project (WP2 and WP3) and reaching up to higher levels of complexity (LCA and lab-scale experiments) (WP4 and WP5), with growing completeness of obtained results.

To achieve project objectives, the project will implement the following main tasks that form the “backbone” of the work programme and associated WPs:

  • Project management and scientific-technical coordination
  • Data gathering, generation, evaluation and validation for the selected nanoproducts and associated materials
  • Hazard characterization of selected nanoproducts
  • Human health and environmental impact assessment of selected products
  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of selected products
  • Evaluation of the mobility of specific nanoparticles in geographic space and time (transport, transformation and destiny)
  • Laboratory exploration of new sustainable solutions for use, recycling and final treatment of selected products
  • Dissemination of results
  • Exploitation and implementation of project outcome.
