New funding project GUIDENano (EU-FP7) just started!
Our new EU FP7 funded project GUIDEnano has just started. Under the lead of Prof. Víctor Puntes, our group is participating of the GUIDEnano consortium along with 26 partners, coordinated by LEITAT Technological Center. The project officially started on November 1st, 2013, and the kick-off meeting recently took place in Barcelona, Spain, on December 9-11, 2013.
The main objective of GUIDEnano is to develop innovative methodologies to evaluate and manage human and environmental health risks of nano-enabled products, considering the whole product life cycle. Our group participates of Work Packages 2, 3, 8, 9 and 11, but we will particularly devoted to WP7, of which we are WP leader. In this WP we will develop new technologies for risk reduction and risk management of nanomaterials, in which we mainly aim to generate nanosafety-by-design strategies for nanomaterials production.
