The HEHS Center offers technological and expert support to industries to ensure that their nanotechnology based-products and processes are safe for human health and the environment. It offers its capacities and experience to a wide range of sectors.
The HEHS Center assesses workers exposure to aerosols and engineered nanomaterials.
Potentially hazardous particles are present during the following manufacturing processes:
Characterization of (nano)materials following standard protocols including identification and quantification in complex matrices
The HEHS Center participates in the most important research projects on nanomaterial safety at European level developing future regulations, frameworks, standards and classifications. It is also highly involved in the EU Nanosafety Cluster to maximise the synergies between European-level projects, and to address the safety of materials and technologies enabled by the use of nanoparticles.
