NanoSphere - a strong research environment financed by Formas

Program duration: 2009-2014

The rapid and promising advancement of nanotechnology requires a concomitant expansion of the knowledge about risks - human, ecological and societal - related to nanomaterials and nanoparticles.

Increasing evidence shows that nanoparticles may have adverse effects, but the picture is fragmented and sometimes contradictory partly due to a lacking control on dispersion, physico-chemical descriptors and characterization, dosimetry and endpoints for nanoparticles. These problems hamper the implementation of appropriate risk assessment procedures and societal risk regimes.
