NanoMONITOR shows great progress during a successful Stakeholder event and Project meeting held in Lancaster, UK

Lancaster Events 2017NanoMONITOR successfully organised its 4th General Assembly Meeting and 2nd Stakeholders’ Workshop: Safe Nanotechnology – Risk management, exposure and regulatory challenges in Lancaster, UK in October 2017.

The workshop served as an effective platform to disseminate the progress achieved within the project to a targeted audience of nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators. The delegates had the opportunity to provide feedback on the NanoMONITOR Monitoring Station Prototype and the NanoMONITOR Software Platform developed within the project.

Save your place at the Safe Nanotechnology – Risk management, exposure and regulatory challenges workshop

Registration for the Second NanoMONITOR Stakeholders’ Day: Safe Nanotechnology – Risk management, exposure and regulatory challengesto be held on 24 October in Lancaster, UK is now open!


The Workshop is free of registration fees and open to the public. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

The workshop will introduce the exposure and risks arising from exposure to particulates including nanomaterials.  It will then discuss the current status of the NanoMONITOR project allowing delegates to have the opportunity to test and provide feed-back on the prototype and the data acquisition software.  Finally attendees will learn about the latest regulatory developments affecting nanomaterials in the EU and worldwide, including guidance the best tools available to meet these obligations.

NanoMONITOR launches a survey on refining the design of the real-time information and monitoring system to supports the risk assessment of nanomaterials under REACH

This short 10 minutes survey has three sections aimed at
1) obtaining insights about stakeholders’ requirements on the NanoMonitor web platform;
2) understanding stakeholders’ requirements on the NanoMonitor station prototype;
3) evaluating the current use of the measured data to evaluate the potential environmental, health and safety risk posed by the use of nanomaterials.

Thank you for your participation!


The NanoMONITOR web portal demo version is now available

NanoMONITOR Web Portal

NanoMONITOR Web Portal

The web-based NanoMONITOR application is a distributed client-server system. The software application will support the import of “historical” monitoring data; the capture of monitoring data from sensors in real-time; real-time QA/QC for data imports, data storage including automatic incremental backup strategies, data  (basic descriptive statistics), graphical display, a range of analytical tools for exposure- and risk analysis,  and the prediction (simulation) of indoor- and ambient concentration (counts and mass based) values, together with data conversion- and export tools, and the management of associated META data (partly structured, partly as free (multi-media data for full text search) for the interpretation of all monitoring data holdings.

Workshop purpose

This workshop is a forum for nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators to present and discuss the use of measured data on the concentration of engineered nanomaterials to support the risk assessment of nanomaterials and the implementation of safe exposure scenarios, guaranteeing a high level of protection of the human health and the environment.

Workshop topics

  • Workplace and environmental exposure to ENMs
  • Data acquisition and data sharing technologies
  • Air Quality monitoring
  • Impact of nanotechnologies on human health and the environment
  • Risk Governance of nanotechnologies


Registration Deadline: 31 March 2017

Due to the capacity limitations of the venue, the maximum number of attendees to be accepted is limited to 70. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
