Supporting the responsible use of nanomaterials
Nanosafety Platform general presentation
Nanosafety, a natural extension of the nuclear industry's culture of safety
The CEA's Grenoble campus drew upon its strong track record in nanosafety to coordinate the first EU NanoSafe project and host the first NanoSafe conference in 2008, evidence of the organization's commitment to expanding nanosafety research.
In 2009, the CEA's strong know-how in nanosafety earned the organization the position as lead on the Nanosafety component of the Nano-Innov program .
The Nanosafety Platform opened its doors on November 22, 2013, the fruit of more than a decade of research. The Rhône-Alpes regional government provided €14.3 million in funding; the French government added another €3 million under its national higher-education modernization plan, which aims to position Grenoble-Alpes University as a world-class center for innovation.
