ERA Chair to address big challenges of tiny particles
Nanotechnology, which involves molecule-sized machines and processes, can help save precious resources and minimise wastage. The term nano (Greek for 'dwarf') means one billionth and a nanometre is a billionth of a metre (a strand of hair is about 75 000 nanometres across). The EU-funded SiNfONiA project aims to ensure the safe development and application of this emerging, cutting-edge technology in diverse areas such as medicine, environment and energy production. At the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Portugal, the project will attract and maintain a high-profile researcher (ERA Chair) and a team with excellent research capabilities in the nano-safety research domain.
