MAnaging RIsks of NAnoparticles: launch of the MARINA project: SAFENANO & the Institute of Occupational Medicine are proud to announce the launch of MARINA – one of the largest projects addressing nanotechnology risk issues to date

Edinburgh, UK | Posted on November 7th, 2011

Led by Dr. Lang Tran, IOM, MARINA aims within its 39 month timescale to develop specific reference methods for all the main steps in managing the potential risk of engineered nanomaterials (ENM). MARINA will address the four central themes in the risk management paradigm for ENM: Materials, Exposure, Hazard and Risk.

The methods developed by MARINA will be: (i) based on beyond-state-of-the-art understanding of the properties, interaction and fate of ENM in relation to human health and the quality of the environment and will either (ii) be newly developed or adapted from those existing but ultimately, they will be compared/validated and harmonised/standardised as reference methods for managing the risk of ENM.

MARINA will develop a strategy for Risk Management including monitoring systems and measures for minimising massive exposure via explosion or environmental spillage.

Lang Tran, MARINA's Coordinator said "MARINA is a flagship project, which promises to develop robust risk management methods for nanomaterials. I am proud to be coordinating such a strong team of scientists".

With a global consortium of 47 partners, the project is one of the largest in its area. The project will officially launch at a joint meeting with FP7 project NANOVALID, to be held in Rome later this month.
