ETHICS - report on ethical issues

A report on the ethical issues must be submitted to REA The applicant must 1) confirm that the ethical standards and guidelines of Horizon2020 will be rigorously applied, regardless of the country in which the research is carried out. 2) the applicant must provide details on the material which could be imported to/exported from EU and provide the adequate authorisations when needed.

ETHICS: authorizations for nanotechnology use

University of Cordoba and CNRS Bordeaux will provide authorizations for nanotechnology use in month 6 as a deliverable. In addition, they will provide the documents with regard to safety classifications of the laboratory. The staff will receive adequate training in storing, handling and disposing of nanomaterials. For new nanocatalysts, we will provide adequate risk assessments.
