First Joint Transnational Call (2012)

Basic Information

Network SIINN
Aim of the joint call The aim of the first call is to close knowledge gaps with respect to EHS (Environment and Human Safety) issues in order promote the rapid transfer of the results of nanoscience and nanotechnology research into industrial application by helping to create reliable conditions. The call is opened to innovative transnational research proposals focusing on Manufactured NanoMaterials (MNMs) in the four topics described below: 1. Establishment and development of models and methods for analytical tools, theoretical prediction, and characterization 2. Exposure assessment 3. Studies on Impacts of MNMs on environment 4. Studies on properties and effects of MNM on human health The research teams within a consortium should include investigators of all scientific disciplines and research areas necessary to address the proposed research aims. Proposals should contain novel, ambitious aims and ideas, combined with well-structured work plans.
