Managing Risks of Nanoparticles (MARINA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2011, End date: Oct 31, 2015,

While there are standard procedures for product life cycle analysis, exposure, hazard, and risk assessment for traditional chemicals, is not yet clear how these procedures need to be modified to address all the novel properties of nanomaterials. There is a need to develop specific reference methods for all the main steps in managing the potential risk of ENM. The aim of MARINA is to develop such ...

ICT-EMISSIONS aims at developing a novel methodology to evaluate the impact of ICT-related measures on mobility, vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions of vehicle fleets at the local scale, in order to promote the wider application of the most appropriate ICT measures. The proposed methodology combines traffic and emission modelling at micro and macro scales. These will be linked with interf ...

Data Infrastructure for Chemical Safety (diXa)

Start date: Oct 1, 2011, End date: Sep 30, 2014,

The EU nowadays witnesses increasing demands with regard to chemical safety. In particular, animal-based test models need to be replaced preferably by robust, non-animal assays in vitro/in silico which better predict human toxicity in vivo, are less costly, and are socially better acceptable. Consumer's and patient's health will benefit and competitiveness of EU's chemical manufacturing industry w ...

INTELLIGENT TESTING STRATEGY FOR ENGINEERED NANOMATERIALS (ITS-NANO)

Start date: Mar 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2013,

The background, concept and objectives of ITS-NANO are straight forward. The volume of information on hazard characterisation of ENM is increasing fast. In parallel with the scientific development, regulation orientated initiatives are also taking place to identify needs.The ITS-NANO concept is 1: Gather targeted all scientific evidence, by literature search and communication with leading scientis ...

"Proteins are crucial structural and functional elements of life, and frequent targets of intervention. Short protein sequences, conventionally defined as peptides, have emerged as indispensable tools in biotechnology: peptides may represent short linear protein structures, and in some cases they even mimic more complex discontinuous structures. Custom-made synthetic peptides cost down to ca. 30 E ...

"ADVISE is a prenormative project for experimental validation of simulations of dynamic events using full-field optical methods of deformation measurement. These powerful tools are used in evaluating the performance, reliability, and safety of primary structures and for validating their computational design. Optimised design of primary structures leads to lighter and more energy efficient produc ...

... veloped that effectively describe how exposure to humans and the environment occur and what measures are required to control the exposure. The aim of the NANEX project is to develop a catalogue of generic and specific (ocupational, consumer and environmental release) exposure scenarios for MNMs taking account of the entire lifecycle of these materials. NANEX will collect and review available expos ...
