Welcome to DaNa.

About DaNa

The DaNa4.0 Team

 

The German BMBF project DaNa4.0 deals with the question of whether new, advanced materials including nanomaterials, can be harmful to humans and the environment and how humans and the environment come into contact with these materials. DaNa4.0 is the successor project to DaNa2.0 (2013-2019) and builds on its results.

Complex, toxicological questions from current material research are being addressed and presented in an easy understandable format for non-scientists, i.e. interested consumers, journalists, politicians, NGOs, etc. These topics are communicated via the website www.nanopartikel.info, brochures and info flyers in an interdisciplinary approach with scientists from human toxicology, ecotoxicology, biology and chemistry.

In addition, the scientific results from the projects of the current BMBF funding measure NanoCare4.0 are processed and integrated into this knowledge base. Current scientific literature on human and environmental toxicology of new, advanced and application-safe materials / nanomaterials is being analysed and qualitatively evaluated by the expert team to expand the knowledge platform. The evaluation of these current research results for the DaNa knowledge base is based on a careful scientific approach using the DaNa criteria catalogue.
