What is Nanocentre?

Nanotechnology offers new possibilities which can increase our quality of life. Think of a reduction in energy consumption, stronger and lighter materials, and materials with new properties. This is nanotechnology. However, is nanotechnology always safe?  Nanocentre aims to support you to ensure safe innovation of products or processes that utilize nanomaterials. Nanocentre is the site where companies can get answers to their questions about safety of nanomaterials, where guidance is given to get familiar with the huge amount of information on nanomaterials, and the site which offers an opportunity to exchange information between companies, research organisations and the government.
