The European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) has launched a new feature - two searchable databases: NanoData, a knowledge base on nano science and technology and the eNanoMapper that helps you find safety information about nanomaterials.

The EUON website has been updated with new information about nanomaterials within the EU regulatory framework, how they are used in different sectors, such as food, medicine and environmental research, and how to use nanomaterials safely at work.

Contains data on different products, research projects, publications, patents and companies and helps you to visualise statistics quickly through built-in charts and graphs. The data can also be easily filtered by different sectors and geographic location. The database can be used for example by consumers interested in finding out about products that use nanotechnology.

Gives access to one of the largest data sources currently available on the toxicological properties of nanomaterials. The data originates from several research projects, including the results of the EU funded NanoREG project. The eNanoMapper can be used by anybody interested in finding toxicological data on specific nanomaterials.

These data sets are the result of many years' work between multiple EU-funded projects and reflect the growing collective strength of nanosafety research to support novel materials development.
