DaNa – Acquisition, evaluation and public-oriented presentation of society-relevant data and findings relating to nanomaterials

DaNa is an umbrella project aiming at collecting and evaluating scientific results in an interdisciplinary approach with scientists from different research areas, such as human and environmental toxicology, biology, physics, chemistry, and sociology. Research findings from the field of human and environmental nanotoxicology will be prepared and presented together with material properties and possible applications for interested laymen and stakeholders. This data will be published on a website and also via other media. Furthermore the scientific results of the project cluster NanoCare (NanoCare, INOS and TRACER), along with data from literature and of current and recent projects provide a basis for a critical but balanced evaluation of nanomaterials and their toxicological properties. All data will be evaluated with regard to their scientific value prior to publishing.

Pupils‘ focus groups on “Nanotechnology and environmental protection – chances and risks” will take place in three German schools within the framework of the DaNa project. They will provide pupils with the opportunity to form their own knowledge-based opinion on chances and risks associated with nanotechnological processes in the environmental sector.
