Neuchâtel/Landquart - CSEM leads consortium to quantify nanoparticles in consumer goods

 In response to the increasing need for the detection and analysis of nanoparticles, European industry and academics have launched the EU-funded SMART-NANO project. The consortium's principal purpose of developing a technology platform for the measurement of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) could provide the key tool in assessing the fate and potential safety risks of ENPs for example in cosmetic products. The CSEM will coordinate the four-year project, the € 3.5 M funding of which will secure the platform's development, field application, and testing.
