NanoPUZZLES – INNOVATION FOR LIFE, HEALTH AND CLEAN TECHNOLOGY
The NanoPUZZLES project creates new computational methods for comprehensive modelling of the relationships between the structure, properties, molecular interactions and toxicity of engineered nanoparticles.
Nanotechnology is rapidly expanding, however, some types of engineered nanoparticles can be toxic for living organisms and exhibit negative impact on the environment. Thus, the design of new nanomaterials must be supported by a rigorous risk analysis. Following the recommendations by the EU REACH system and taking into account ethical considerations, the risk assessment procedures should aim to reduce testing on living animals where possible.
