The European Union, in the framework of the Horizon 2020, has financed with a budget of just over 5 million euros the SAbyNA project that aims to create an online user-friendly guidance platform for industries working with nanomaterials.
Within the framework of a safe and sustainable innovation in the field of nanotechnology, it is necessary to know the potential risks associated with the development and use of nanotechnology-based products. If we add to that the great variety of nanomaterials and how they interact in different environments, it becomes difficult to generate guidelines and protocols for action to prevent the potential associated risks.
The SAbyNA project is coordinated by the technology center Leitat in Barcelona and counts 16 partners from 8 different countries.
