An open e-infrastructure to making nanomaterials safer by design
As the use of functional engineered nanomaterials and nano-enabled products becomes more widespread, so too will concerns around their safety and impact on humans and the environment. The EU-funded NanoUptake project plans to develop an open e-infrastructure that will help guide the development of 'safe-by-design' nanomaterials. The platform will foster dialogue and collaboration among various actors involved in the nanomaterial supply chain. It will provide resources that will aid the design of high-performance nanomaterials with minimal hazard and development costs. Cost–benefit analysis algorithms will help find the best compromise between safety and technical performance in line with industrial requirements. NanoUptake offers a unique opportunity to promote open science for nanomaterials and explore exposure risk, considering their sheer number and diversity.
