Data and knowledge on Nanomaterials - Processing of socially relevant scientific facts

Veröffentlichungen aus dem Projekt DaNa 2.0



Collecting, evaluating and presenting of up-to-date scientific facts in an easy comprehensible way is the main focus of the project DaNa2.0 – the sequel project to DaNa. The interdisciplinary scientific expert team coming from different research areas such as human and environmental toxicology, biology, physics, chemistry and pharmacy will prepare the latest research findings from the field of human and environmental nanotoxicology and present these together with material properties and possible applications for interested laymen, stakeholders and other scientists. These data and together with further facts on nanotechnology are publicly available on the internet platform oder www.nanoobjects.info and also via other media.

Furthermore the scientific results generated by projects from the BMBF-funding initiatives NanoCare & NanoNature will be integrated into the existing knowledge base. In addition to that other scientific results (publications, reports, etc.) on the latest news on human and environmental toxicology will be also be analysed to continuously update the content and broaden the scope of our information platform. All data will be evaluated with regard to their scientific value prior to publishing using DaNa's own "Literature Criteria Checklist".
