NanoDefine is approaching the end of the project (31 October 2017). By assessing a wide spectrum of test materials from more simple monotype to complex poly-disperse matrices with different shapes, structures and compositions, including real-world materials, such as industrial or consumer products, the performance of existing key measurement techniques (MTs) was critically evaluated, improved and further developed, and validated.

Here comes the 2nd NanoDefine Bulletin highlighting the most recent results produced by the project since spring 2016 and their practical potential for end-users, such as material and instrument manufacturers, to match the analytical challenges triggered by the EC Recommendation for a Nano-definition (2011/696/EU). Main objective of the EU FP7 NanoDefine project is to develop a methodology and measurement strategy to support practitioners in industries, regulatory bodies and enforcement laboratories to reliably implement the EC Nano-definition.

Join the Final NanoDefine Outreach Event on “Classification of Materials according to the EU Nano-Definition” on the 19-20 September 2017 at “Leopold” Hotel in Brussels (Rue du Luxembourg 35, 1050 Bruxelles) (http://www.hotel-leopold.be). This 2-days final meeting will give you a unique opportunity to learn more about the outcome of the NanoDefine project and possible practical implications, and how to meet future regulatory needs associated with the practical implementation of the EU recommendation on the Definition of Nanomaterial (2011/696/EU).

The concept of the European FP7 project NanoDefine is: Development of an integrated approach based on validated and standardized methods to support the implementation of the EC recommendation of the for a definition of nanomaterial. The major outcome of the project is the establishment of an integrated tiered approach based on validated rapid screening methods (tier 1) and validated confirmatory methods (tier 2). With the developed NanoDefiner eTool and user manual, end-users will be guided to implement the developed methodology.
