About the research group
Nanotechnology & Risk is dedicated to studying the potential environmental risks of engineered nanomaterials. This is done by following two basic approaches:
A laboratory based approach to gain new insights in the behaviour and ecotoxicity of nanomaterials, and a desk based approach to critically analyze and suggest solutions to the regulatory and management challenges posed by the emergence of this new technological field.
Our aim is to provide scientific input to aid proactive thinking and decision-making aimed at a sustainable development of nanotechnology by minimizing potential adverse side-effects.
Our activities cover substance flow analyses, hazard identification, exposure assessment, risk evaluation procedures and uncertainty analyses. The research group Nanotechnology & Risk is a member of NanoDTU and a core-partner in NanoImpactNet - The European Network on the Health and Environmental Impact of Nanomaterials (www.nanoimpactnet.eu)
