New DaNa article on risk assessment of nanomaterials
To estimate the potential hazard of nanomaterials a risk assessment is needed. How to determine the concentration of nanoparticles, which are difficult to detect? Why is modelling the method of choice and how does it work? The new article about “Estimating the occurrence of nanomaterials in the environment” gives you an overview about exposure modelling. Workshop 2019
On May 17th 2019, contactpointnano is organizing a workshop on working with novel nanomaterials in an industrial setting in Geneva, Switzerland. The workshop is mainly targeting Start-ups, SMEs and established companies that are already working with novel nanomaterials or are planning to integrate nanotech into their production lines. Deadline for registration is 10 May 2019. Switzerland occupies a leading position internationally in the field of nanoresearch. However, when it comes to transposing existing knowledge into practice and fully exploiting the application potential of...

New DaNa article on pollinating insects
Pollen of contaminated plants or water droplets can be carriers for nanomaterials. Bees and bumblebees are potentially exposed to those nanoparticles, caused e.g. by the increased usage of nanofertilizer and nanopesticides. Do nanomaterials pose a threat to pollinators? Might they be one of the reasons of the insect species extinction? What studies have been published to this topic?   The recently published DaNa-article "Nanomaterials and pollinating insects?” will enlighten this topic and can be found in our Cross-Cutting section.          
caLIBRAte Closing Conference 2019
From 07-10 October 2019, the caLIBRAte Closing Conference will be taking place as a part of the NanoSafety Cluster Week in Copenhagen, Denmark. The closing conference is relevant for researchers, industry, policy makers and regulators who are interested in nanosafety, risk governance as well as nanomaterial and product development. During the 5-day-event, participants will learn about the results from the project calibrate and take part in both the training event on the NanoRisk governance portal as well as the NanoSafety Cluster conference “Towards in silico nanosafety assessment –...
