    Facilitating decision-making in choice of techniques and SOPs

Expected impacts

  • Enable the identification of key descriptors that can be used to reveal correlations associated with health & environmental impacts and meaningful basis for grouping, read-across and QSARs purposes
  • Increased confidence in nanosafety studies and findings through sound physico-chemical characterisation methods and standard operating procedures
  • Reduced costs related to the physico-chemical characterisation of nanomaterials in relevant environments
  • On top of safety related objectives, proposals should seek synergies with applications of the methods in other areas such as quality control, product traceability, labelling and counterfeiting
