NIA takes part in international collaborations to help build the nanotechnology ecosystem, particularly for industry.  It works throughout the value chain to ensure that development activities take into account industry needs for long term viability, building a balanced commercial environment for return on taxpayer investment into nanomaterials through publicly-funded research.


The Gov4Nano project will develop the first implementation of a future-proof operational Nano Risk Governance Model (NRGM) that addresses the needs of the trans­disciplinary field and innovative (and key enabling) character of nano­­tech­nology. WEBPAGE

Nanotechnology NOW!

NANO NOW! will develop  specific content with the most important information about nanotechnology on its innovative non-academic online knowledge platform. WEBPAGE


PATROLs will establish and standardise next generation advanced safety assessment tools for improved prediction of adverse effects of chronic engineered nanomaterials (ENM) in human and environmental systems.​ WEBSITE


SUSNANOFAB will develop tools and methods to help the whole nanofabrication value chain including an open access digital platform that brings together a wide range of resources; integrated strategy articulating the whole value chain; and an EU wide strategic roadmap on nanofabrication. WEBSITE
