NANO. “ Nano ” is something very small. In order that a structure can be definied “ nano ” , it needs at least one dimension smaller than 100 nm. The ratio between 1m and 1 nm is the same between an apple and the earth ’ s dimension.
To ensure the development
of nanotechnologies we need :
- minimize health risks
- avoid the increase of costs
– Develop and structure the field of nanotoxicology in Austria and Europe for an international knowledge.
–Create national contact point for researchers and industry to facilitate comunication.
–Activate establishment of international contacts with key players in the area of nanotoxicology.
–Providing industries with a tool kit of methods for the in-vitro and in-vivo measurement of the toxicological potential of nanostructured materials.
