NANOTRANSPORT is an EU research project addressing the occupational health risks associated with aerosols released during manufacture of nanoparticles. The objective of NANOTRANSPORT was to investigate physical changes which nanoparticle aerosols undergo after release into the workplace environment under specific scenarios. This information is essential in order to understand the characteristics of nanoparticles when they reach a human receptor. Knowledge obtained from the study was used to develop recommendations to EC regarding:

- Test aerosols for nanotoxicology studies;

- Testing of filters and protective equipment in the workplace;

- Research priorities. 


Model exposure scenarios used for the study

Main results of the project are presented at the workshop on research projects on the safety of nanomaterials: reviewing the knowledge gaps, Brussels, 17-18 April 2008 Organised by Pilar Aguar "Nano- and Converging Sciences and Technologies" DG Research EUROPEAN COMMISSION.
