New EU project assesses safety of nanoparticles
The nanosciences are considered by many as a key technology for the 21st century, with an ever-increasing range of possible applications. In health for example, new drug delivery systems based on nanoparticles are said to be on the brink of delivering major developments in drug therapy. Nanoscience is also acting as a motor for new materials and innovative solutions in the areas of energy and environmental protection.
However, the recent discovery that the exposure of animals to nanoparticles can lead to neurological damage means that research into safety is crucial to the dynamic and sustainable development of these new technologies.
The European Commission is therefore providing seven million euro to a Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) project aimed at developing methods for the safe use of nanoparticles.
