Final Report - NANOSH (Inflammatory and genotoxic effects of engineered nanomaterials)

Project ID: 32777
Funded under: FP6-NMP


Nanotechnology is a rapidly increasing area of industry providing new and innovative solutions into many industrial sectors. The challenge faced by policy makers and the scientific community is that very little is actually known about the health effects of nanoparticles. It is essential that reliable information should be gathered before these particles enter widespread use to avoid potential health problems induced by the exposure to workers and consumers.

In summing up the major impact of the project in their final report, they conclude that the findings of the project have a significant socio-economic impact on European capability of conducting research and innovation in the area of nanotechnology. The project also provides essential information which can be used on a wider basis for assessing occupational and other safety risks associated with the production and use of nanoparticles.
