Risk management involves quantifying hazard (toxicity) and exposure, and taking the necessary steps to reduce both to acceptable levels, ideally at an early stage of the nanomaterial development process (safe-by-design). The challenge now is to distil existing methods into simple, robust, cost-effective methods for monitoring and modelling of physicalchemical properties and biological effect assessment of nanomaterials in relevant use conditions including in product-relevant matrices.

This is a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) of two-stage model. The first deadline is 22 January 2019 and the second one is 03 September 2019. The EU contribuition is 5-6 million €.

Among the eligibility and admissibility conditions criteria, the consortium shall include at least 3 participants from 3 different EU Member States or Associated countries. In addition to these three partners, any legal entity from anywhere in the world can be included in the consortium.
