HINAMOX - European project that tests the toxicity of metal oxide nanoparticles

Understanding the safety, environmental and human health implications of nanomaterials and nanotechnology based materials and products, is an issue of paramount importance for Europe and the rest of the world.

This understanding is required both for future assessments of the safety of nano-based products, and to achieve greater public acceptance of nanotechnology and public awareness of the overall benefits that nanotechnology can bring. This is a strong prerequisite for the future successful development and benefit of nanotechnology products.
