Building bridges between specialists on computational and empirical risk assessment of engineered nanomaterials

Objective

The project is aimed at creating a worldwide network of research partnerships, including various types of research organizations from EU and third countries, with different profiles (computational and empirical risk assessors), focused on the development of new tools for computational risk assessment of engineered nanoparticles (NPs). The mobility plan, supported by the electronic communication tools will create a platform for sharing knowledge and overcoming the fragmentation of scientific efforts in this novel and high priority research field. This is important, because extensively developing nanotechnology might create a significant risk for humans and the environment.

We are going to build 3 metaphoric bridges across the problems limiting risk assessment for NPs: Bridge I: Collaboration between developers of computational and empirical methods for risk assessment. Bridge II: Exchanging ideas developed simultaneously by different groups of similar profiles (e.g., computational – computational). Bridge III: Coordination of regulatory efforts worldwide in the area of nanorisk assessment.
