NanoSafety Cluster Newsletter issue 24

Lesley Tobin

In this issue, a report from the Coordination Team highlights how the future of our Newsletter and related activities is in jeopardy. We extend our gratitude to the NanoHarmony and Gov4Nano projects, which are ensuring their continuation until the start of 2022, after which there is no funding support. Please take a moment to read the CT update, and please let us know your thoughts on how these activities can be financially supported.

Following the CT report, we have updates from our Working Groups on their ongoing activities. This is followed by two short pieces, the first providing links to the NSC Training School videos, and the second describing new collaborations with ELIXIR, which unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding data generated by publicly funded research.

In our extensive selection of news from the NSC Projects, read about PATROLS’ final meeting before the significant contribution from NanoPAT—join the forthcoming workshop (p.23). You’ll also see updates from the NMBP-13, 14 and 15 projects. If you have a moment, please have a look at the survey on the perception of nanomaterials (p.16)

In news from related projects, the CUSP Cluster (The European research cluster to understand the health impacts of micro- and nanoplastics (MNPs) announces the publication of its very first newsletter and brochure with valuable information.

Our ‘Other News’ section includes a report from NANORIGO partner Wecf, based on their cosmetics study, which highlighted a number of ingredients of concern, while the following two articles focus on the workplace and industry contexts and issues and will appeal to those involved in these sectors.

In ‘Publications’ you will find links to three very different topics ranging from a COVID-19 innoculation study,  to FAIR Data and then to wood and its future potential

Finally, in events, check the dates as soon as you can. Some of them are imminent!

Once again, your contributions are enormously appreciated and thank you to everyone who has taken the time to compile and submit news items. We hope you enjoy this issue. Please feel free to share among your networks.
