Safe nanoscale product and process design

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.
