Main topics

  • UNDERSTAND
    Interactions of nanomaterials with human cells, tissues and organs
  • DEVELOP
    Design of safe and secure nanomaterials
    Production of nanosecurity marks
  • EXPLAIN
    Public perception and discourse about nano issues
    Establishment of an infrastructure for managing nano-related research data

The topic requires an inter- and transdisciplinary approach; elements of chemistry, physics and materials science must be linked with aspects of biology, toxicology, medicine and social sciences.
