EUON Looks for Topic Suggestions for Future Studies on Nanomaterials

The European Union (EU) Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) conducts up to three studies annually.  The studies are intended to address knowledge gaps relating to nanomaterials that are of interest to the general public and the research community.  EUON announced on January 14, 2019, that it is now looking for topic suggestions that could be addressed in its upcoming studies.  EUON is looking for studies that address:

  • Questions relating to the health and safety of nanomaterials, including hazard and risk assessment, exposure to nanomaterials, or worker safety and protection;
  • Specific issues surrounding the uses of nanomaterials by consumers or workers; or
  • Markets for nanomaterials, focusing on EU markets.

EUON states that the scope of the study can be on nanomaterials in general, a specific nanomaterial, or a defined group of nanomaterials.  It should be possible to execute the study within three to nine months.  The studies should be based on desk research and surveys, and they should not require experimental facilities, for example for conducting animal or other laboratory studies.  Proposals are due January 25, 2019.  The EUON secretariat will assess all proposals.  EUON’s existing framework contracts will carry out the selected proposals.  EUON will make the outcome and study reports publicly available on the EUON website.
