NanoImpactNet: European Network on the Health and Environmental Impact of Nanomaterials

Staff: Vicki Stone, Teresa Fernandes

Funding: FP7

Project Aims:

NanoImpactNet was a multidisciplinary European network on the health and environmental impact of nanomaterials. The project aimed to support the safe and responsible development of nanomaterials, and communication between the scientific community and a variety of stakeholders was essential e.g. to support the implementation of legislation in Europe. Vicki Stone and Teresa Fernandes were work package leaders of the ‘Hazards and fate of nanomaterials in the environment’ component of the project.
