    Facilitating decision-making in choice of techniques and SOPs

ACEnano in a nutshell

ACEnano will introduce confidence, adaptability and clarity into nanomaterial risk assessment by developing a widely implementable and robust tiered approach to nanomaterials physicochemical characterisation that will simplify and facilitate contextual (hazard or exposure) description and its transcription into a reliable nanomaterials grouping framework.

vision


This will be achieved by the creation of a “conceptual toolbox” including a tiered approach to cost efficient nanomaterials analysis that will facilitate decision-making in choice of techniques and SOPs, linked to a characterisation ontology framework for grouping and risk assessment.
ACEnano will initiate activities to support data collection, management, interpretation and delivery to a data warehouse for safe use & storage. It will thus underpin the future of nanomaterial quality control, labelling and anti-counterfeiting.

Save the dates for OpenTox Euro 2017 Meeting

We are happy to invite you to the OpenTox Euro 2017 Meeting to be held 21-23 November in Basel (Switzerland) at the Stücki meeting center.

This year’s program explores the major issues facing the European toxicology community, including Integration/interoperability, regulatory acceptance and the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of Animal Testing).

Everyone concerned with designing a safer world is welcome at OpenTox Euro: researchers from academia and industry working in vivo, in vitro and in silico, risk assessors and regulators.

Our mission: Promote OpenTox as the place where the toxicology community talks across geographical, political, funding and field-of-expertise borders.
