GRACIOUS Release and Exposure Templates


The EU-funded H2020 project GRACIOUS has created standardised release, fate and exposure data collection Excel templates to be used by field researchers. These templates allow systematic collection of data on occupational and environmental release and exposure of nanoforms (NFs). There is a lack of release and exposure data and that available has not been collected in a harmonised way making difficult the comparison of scenarios to evaluate the influence of different approaches to reduce release and exposure. The templates include all data required to interpret a scenario so it is possible to read across from a “source scenario” to a scenario for which measurement data is not available base on the type of NF, matrix, specific activity, exposure controls. The templates are also available from the EU funded eNanoMapper database platform.

The templates are free to use under the licence agreement “Creative Commons - Share alike”. If you intend to use these templates, as such or modifying them, please acknowledge the primary source mentioning "GRACIOUS Release and Exposure Templates".
