Supporting the responsible use of nanomaterials
Nanosafety Platform general presentation
and the nanomaterial lifecycle
Nanosafety addresses the entire nanomaterial lifecycle. Nanosafety covers:
Organizations that develop and sell nanomaterials are especially aware of the release of nanoparticles into the environment as their products age and are exposed to UV rays or mechanical stress. The priority is, of course, to commercialize products that do not expose people or the environment to risks that are currently not well understood. Therefore, two factors must be taken into account from the very beginning:
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
