SAbyNA

Simple, robust and cost-effective approaches to guide industry in the development of safer nanomaterials and nano-enabled products

Projet H2020 (2020-2024)

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 862419.

Partners: Within SAbyNA, there is a close collaboration between 17 partners from government, research institutes and industry from Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Finland, France, Sweden, the United States and the Netherlands.

The project is coordinated by LEITAT, a Spanish Technological Center.

The main objective of SAbyNA is to develop an overarching integrative and interactive web-based guideline “The SAbyNA Guidance Platform”, to support the development of safer nano-enabled products with advanced functionalities tailored to different industrial sectors.
The guideline will consist of a step-by-step approach to identify potential risks and to indicate options for managing these risks, both by adapting the design of the product and by adapting the production process; safer nanoforms (NFs) and nano-enabled products (NEPs), safer nano processes over the whole life cycle. As a case study within SAbyNA, 3D printing and paint are used, where exposure to nanomaterials is possible.
