SUN – SUSTAINABLE NANOTECHNOLOGIES is a project funded by the FP7.
In the project are involved 35 partners from 13 EU countries.
The concept of SUN is to combine Risk Assessment and Lifecycle Assessment to develop a userfriendly, versatile software- based Decision Support System (DSS) for practical use by industries and regulators.
The industrial partners in the SUN consortium will evaluate and “realitycheck” the DSS against real industrial case studies in terms of cost/benefit and insurance risk.
This validation will culminate in guidelines for safe nanoscale product and process design.
