FP7 NanoValid and MARINA

Sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas for greater impact

Two key projects of the EU’s NanoSafety Cluster, NanoValid and MARINA, were launched on 1st November 2011 with a joint budget of €18.6 million. The aims of the two large‐scale integrated projects are aligned and focus on the development of reference methods and materials for life cycle analysis, exposure, hazard identification, and risk assessment of engineered nanomaterials.


2nd Italian-Swedish Workshop on Health Impacts of Engineered Nanoparticles

15 to 16 June 2012 Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm

The scientific aim of the workshop is to provide up-to-date information on human exposure and adverse health effects of engineered nanomaterial (ENM), as well to highlight current and future biomedical applications of ENM including as targeted drug delivery systems and for regenerative medicine. The goal is to develop a platform for common initiatives of Italian and Swedish researchers in the field of nanotoxicology; to this end, a special session devoted to this issue is planned.

First NanoValid Newsletter

Welcome to the first Newsletter of the EU FP7 NanoValid project!

NanoValid started on 1st November 2011 and was launched at a kick‐off meeting in Rome, Italy, on 16th‐17th November 2011. This first meeting was coordinated with the kick‐off meeting of MARINA, the other new EU FP7 nanosafety large‐scale integrating project.


Launch of EU FP7 NanoValid Project

The EU FP7 NanoValid project (263147) was launched on 1st November 2011 followed by a kick off meeting, held in conjunction with the EU FP7 MARINA project, at the Universita Cattolica del Sacre Cuore in Rome 16th-18th November 2011. The project will run for four years with the aim of developing a set of reference methods and materials for hazard identification, risk assessment, and life cycle analysis of engineered nanomaterials.
