The overall objective of NanoStreeM (NANOmaterials: STRategies for Safety Assessments in advanced Integrated Circuits Manufacturing )European project is to support and coordinate activities in relation to research and development of novel nanoscale or nanofunctionalized materials enabling further increase of semiconductor manufacturers’ productivity and innovation.
Published on 5 October 2016

​The project proposal addresses the ICT call 25 section c)"International cooperation with USA and Asia in the areas of standardization including in manufacturing (450 mm wafers); improved assessment of the potential impact on workers of the manipulation of nano-materials in the semiconductor fabrication process".

The project consortium therefore sets forth the following high level objectives:

1. Assembling inventories of materials, research topics and directions relevant for nanomaterial use and exposure in nano- electronics manufacturing.

2. identifying gaps in the knowledge available to the semiconductor industry and the methodologies of risk assessment of nanomaterials (either engineered an purposefully used or incidentally released) during manufacturing.

3. Usage of obtained results for better risk governance, dissemination and outreach.
