Access to top European nanoscience facilities is now open thanks to project QNano
Providing access to top facilities for nanomaterials processing, characterisation and exposure assessment, the FP7 project QNano launched its second call for applicants to “Transnational Access”, open to the whole European nanosafety community. The project covers all expenses for the applicant, including travel and consumables. Access to 15 major European research sites is via a single application and evaluation process, described at this link of the QNano website:
The deadline for this second call is August 31, 2012.
The Transnational Access component of the EU-FP7 project QNano is dedicated to providing the European nanosafety community with access to services and equipment for nanomaterials synthesis, processing, characterisation and exposure assessment located at major European research centres, known as Transnational Access Facilities (TAFs). A broad array of analytical services will be available, including various techniques in microscopy (AFM, TEM, SEM, confocal, etc.) and spectroscopy (XRD, and Z-potential, UV-Vis), as well as centrifugation and purification. The ICN is among the 15 TAFs participating in QNano through the Inorganic Nanoparticles Group, which offers technical support in the synthesis and characterisation of diverse types of inorganic nanoparticles.
We encourage you to apply! Do contact our group if we can assist you in any way.
