Final Report - NANORETOX (The reactivity and toxicity of engineered nanoparticles risks to the environment and human health)

Project ID: 214478
Funded under: FP7-NMP


This is the final report for the NANORETOX project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). NANORETOX was an international, interdisciplinary and strategic research program, funded under the European Commission's NMP programme and addressed the environmental and human implications of exposure to engineered nanoparticles. The report outlines that central to the NANORETOX research approach was placing equal weight on nanoparticle synthesis and characterisation as on toxicological and ecotoxicological studies, which was quite a novel concept at the outset of the project, and indeed is still a topic of considerable debate in 2013. These three research strands were constantly harmonising activities as the project progressed, the project explores these three research strands and their outcomes.
