Main Activity in Nanotechnology
The rapidly developing field of nanotechnologies presents many opportunities and benefits for new materials with significantly improved properties as well as revolutionary applications in the fields of energy, environment, medicine, etc. The industrial production and use of nanoparticles will be the driving force for the emerging new materials industry of the 21st century. However, the potential impact of these new materials on human health and the environment is viewed with apprehension. This is the purpose of NANOSAFE2 which is an EU funded Integrated Project divided into four subprojects, where different groups work on selected subjects.
