Welcome to QualityNano

Welcome to QualityNano: the European Union-funded infrastructure for Quality in nanomaterials safety testing. This four year project integrates 28 top European analytical & experimental facilities in nanotechnology, medicine and natural sciences with the goal of developing and implementing best practice and quality in all aspects of nanosafety assessment.

QualityNano Final Conference

Meeting on Current Status and Future Plans in NanoSafety Research and Implementation.

The EU Infrastructure on Nanosafety, QualityNano, is concluding its activity with a meeting in 15th to 17th July 2015 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. The opportunity and organization is being used by a variety of groupings, projects, and activities to meet together to discuss the 'Current Status and Future Plans of Nanosafety Research and Implementation', with the concrete emphasis of characterization, reproducibility in nanosafety research.

Besides the effort on characterization, and reproducibility, we will have a broad and thorough discussion of the overall status of the effort in the whole arena of Nanosafety, with many different inputs. We are also encouraging the airing of all views, and thoughts about the current status, and future plans.

Given the close alignment of interests, and the fact that various interested parties are already attending, we are designating this as a CoR meeting in that arena, and are hopeful that you will be able to attend.


The Transnational Access (TA) component for QualityNano is dedicated to providing Users from the European nanosafety community access to nanomaterials processing, characterisation and exposure assessment facilities (TAFs).


The Networking Activities (NA) component for QualityNano will aim to support and integrate the European nanosafety community.


The Joint Research Activity (JRA) component for QualityNano will develop novel analytical approaches and tools to enhance understanding of health and safety issues in nanotechnology and push beyond the state of the art in nanomaterials processing, labelling and identification and characterisation in situ.
