ITS NANO - Intelligent testing strategy for engineered nanomaterials

The volume of information on hazard characterisation of engineered nanomaterials (ENM) is increasing fast. In parallel with the scientific development, regulation orientated initiatives are also taking place to identify needs.

The aim of ITS-NANO is to develop:

  • a framework for future research aiming at rational grouping, through well standardized methods, of engineered nanomaterials (ENM) according to their
    • physical characteristics
    • chemical characteristics
    • biological characteristics.
  • a framework for future research aiming at specific grouping of ENM according to the specific health risk they present towards the immunological, respiratory, reproductive, circulatory, etc... systems.
  • a strategy to increase the integration among stakeholders (food industry, nanomaterial manufacturers, pharma- and health-related industry) for a shared, agreed upon risk assessment strategy and approach to conveying the appropriate, evidence-based information to the public.

The goal is a more safe use of engineered nanomaterials both in the workplace and at home.
