Safety of Nanomaterials

Research to support innovation

De-risking New Technologies

Emerging technologies and cutting edge science provide opportunities but also carry risk.  The full benefits of key technological advances can only be realised with full consideration of the potential risks to workers, consumers, and the environment.

We support research by providing expertise to de-risk the development of new processes and products, to help minimise the barriers to commercial implementation in a safe and sustainable way.

We provide safety work packages for innovation research projects which identify potential hazards and exposures across relevant processes and value chains, to create a comprehensive risk appraisal. Based on this we recommend risk management measures which ensure the safety of the innovation.
