Free Webinar: Human biomonitoring of nanomaterials: Challenges and Achievements

OnlineOnline

Nanotechnology is a fast growing and promising technology due to its potential to develop new add-values products. Their increased production, handling and availability on the market brings innovative applications, but can also lead to personal exposure with the potential for unforeseen biological effects. In particular, workers in companies manufacturing and handling nanomaterials are likely to have regular exposures to engineered nanomaterials and incidental ultrafine dust.

The NanoExplore project aims at an integrated approach for exposure and health effects monitoring of engineered and incidental nanocomposites in workplaces and urban areas. The project is supported by the European LIFE programme and is currently in its pilot phase.
