EUON Seeks Topics to Address in Upcoming Studies

The European Union (EU) Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) announced on October 15, 2019, that it seeks topics that could be addressed in upcoming studies.  EUON conducts up to three studies annually that are intended to address knowledge gaps on nanomaterials that are of interest to the general public and the research community.  EUON states that it 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; or
  • Information about markets for nanomaterials, focusing on EU markets.

According to EUON, the scope of the study can be on nanomaterials in general, a specific nanomaterial, or a defined group of nanomaterials.  The study should be possible to execute within three to nine months.  EUON notes that the studies “should be based on desk research and surveys and should not require laboratory research.”  Proposals are due by January 15, 2020.  The EUON secretariat will assess all proposals.  Selected proposals will be carried out through EUON’s existing procurement channels.  EUON will publish the outcome and study reports on its website.
