Novel Concepts, Methods, and Technologies for the Production of Portable, Easy-to-use Devices for the Measurement and Analysis of Airborne Engineered Nanoparticles in Workplace Air
NANODEVICE is a research project funded by the European Commission in the context of the 7th Framework Program.
The motive of the NANODEVICE project is based on the lack of knowledge of the health effects of the widely used engineered nanoparticles (ENP) and on the shortage of field-worthy, cost-effective ways - especially in real time - for reliable assessment of exposure levels to ENP in workplace air
NANODEVICE will provide new information on the physico-chemical properties of engineered nanoparticles (ENP) and information about their toxicology. Also a novel measuring device will be developed to assess the exposure to ENP´s from workplace air. The purpose of the project is also to promote the safe use of ENP through guidance, standards and education, implementing of safety objectives in ENP production and handling, and promotion of safety related collaborations through an international nanosafety forum.
The project started in 1st of April 2009 and will continue until April 2013.
