FIVE WORK PACKAGES WITH DIFFERENT TASKS

The program is divided into five work packages (WP), each with different scientific tasks. But they are all connected since they examine different stages of a life cycle.

WORK PACKAGE 1: EXPOSURE, FATE AND LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENTS

...will provide new insights on flows and transformations of nanomaterials through the technosphere, their release into the biosphere and the fate of the nanomaterials in the environment.

Principle Investigators: Martin Hässellöv, Inger Odnevall-Wallinder and Sverker Molander

Read more: Results so far

 

WORK PACKAGE 2: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE NANOMATERIAL SURFACE

...will give new understandning on how the formation of a primary corona of environmental organic material on nanoparticles influences subsequent interactions between nanoparticles and organisms and biomolecules.

Principle Investigators: Martin Hässellöv, Inger Odnevall-Wallinder, Christoph Langhammer

Read more: Results so far

 

WORK PACKAGE 3: INTEGRATED HAZARD ASSESSMENTS

...will provide specific details on the relation between physico-chemical properties and the environmental hazards of selected nanoparticles, but will also broaden the scope of such QSAR-analyses with respect to biological complexity.

Principle Investigators: Thomas Backhaus, Bengt Fadeel, Tommy Cedervall

Read more: Results so far

WORK PACKAGE 4: SOCIAL DIMENSIONS OF NANOSAFETY

...will provide new insights regarding perceptions of societal actors including industry, government, experts, and non-government organisations regarding potential risks and benefits of nanotechnology.

Principle Investigators: Martin Hässellöv, Sverker Molander, Åsa Boholm

Read more: Results so far

WORK PACKAGE 5: NANOTECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS TO ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS

...will target the design of novel silica nanoproducts aimed for environmental applications. The synthesis of tracker-silica nanoparticles is proposed to allow detection of silicia nanoparticles under environmentally and biologically relevant conditions.

Principle Investigator: Michael Persson.
