Seven FP7 projects started/starting:



observatoryNANO

-

European nano observatory to provide analysis of key emerging
scientific and technical developments of nanotechnology, their socio
-
economic benefits,
balanced with ethical and societal aspects and EHS issues. Key objective
-

to support EC
policy making in nanotechnology, and policy recommendations to EU member states.

Started April 08



ICPCNanoNet

-

a web
-
based repository of nanoscience and nanotechnology
publications, plus a database of researchers and organisations and an online forum, to
inform and facilitate networking between EU and ICPC RTD.
Started June 08




NanoCharM


characterisation of nanomaterials exploiting non
-
detructive optical
techniques using ellipsometry and polarimetry. Highest rated project, first FP7 project
to kickoff. Summer school attracted 100+ students!
Started January 08



FramingNano

-

International multi
-
stakeholder dialogue platform leading to framing
the responsible development of nanosciences and nanotechnologies.
Started May 08



ENRHES

-

Review of Health and Environmental Safety of Engineered Nanoparticles.
Started September 08
