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.
The Summer School will provide (i) training on the tiered approach and NanoDefine’s eTool (developed by NanoDefine) for classification of nanomater ials, (ii) practical experience and use of the NanoDefiner eTool, from handling of raw data, such as EM pictures or sp-ICPMS output, to implementation into the NanoDefiner, and processing of sp-ICPMS data, (iii) practical training on sp-ICPMS and Electronic Microscopy (EM).
After attending the Summer School, participants will understand the concept of the NanoDefiner eTool, in connection with methods of analysis, such as spICPMS and Electron Microscopy, used.
