The aim of SafeNano Norway is to create a self-sustaining national network for industry and scientists to develop safe nanotechnology and increase public confidence in nanoproducts.
This website is designed to offer a source of general information regarding the current knowledge of human and environmental interactions with nanomaterials.
The SafeNano Norway initiative is a venture part funded by the Research Council of Norway (NANOMAT program) and a group of leading research institutions and universities. The initiative is designed to help industrial and academic communities quantify and control the risks to their workforce, as well as to consumers, the general population and the environment, through both information provision and active research.
Summary of the Spring 2014 EU NanoSafety Cluster Database Survey
The results of the completed survey can be found at http://figshare.com/articles/Summary_of_the_Spring_2014_NSC_Database_Survey/1195888
This survey is a first in a biannual continuous effort and attempt to collect, organise and share up-to-date information about NanoSafety related databases worldwide. For example, it included questions about application programming interfaces, database schema, supported input and output formats, etc. This document summarizes the responses we received before August 2014
EU NanoSafety Cluster WG4 (Database) announces immediate availability of an online NanoSafety Database Survey
The survey can be completed at https://tinyurl.com/wg4dbSurvey
This survey is a first in a biannual continuous effort and attempt to collect, organise and share up-to-date information about NanoSafety related databases worldwide. The resulting list of databases will continuously be updated with new valuable insight along its development. The objective is to help owners and administrators of NanoSafety related databases to broaden awareness of their databases and to ensure interoperability of data.

The BioNanoNet Forschungsgesellschaft mbH (BioNanoNet) is an Austrian network that specializes in the key enabling technologies nanotechnology and biotechnology on a national and international basis, with the emphasis on: (1) nanotoxicology, (2) sensortechnology, (3) health and safety including (nano)medicine, and additionally offers (4) coordination, management, dissemination and communication services. BioNanoNet coordinates the European nanotoxicology centre which supports the development of human technology through nanotechnology for scientific and economic success. Furthermore, BioNanoNet publishes the online journal EURO-NanoTox-LETTERS (ENTL) with a focus on nanotoxicology and nanomedicine. ENTL aims to increase the knowledge of nanoparticle interactions in the physiological context. BioNanoNet: http://cms.bionanonet.at/index.php?lang=english
