We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
JRC scientists have developed the first comprehensive inventory of publicly available tools that are ready to be used for nanomaterial safety assessment.
The NANoREG Toolbox is a freely accessible and unique entry portal that provides easy access to over five hundred tools that are valuable for nanomaterial safety assessment; can now be accessed and downloaded. The Toolbox covers an unprecedented and broad range of tools developed in Europe and elsewhere, and emphasises what presently can be achieved in nanomaterial safety assessment, with up-to-date equipment.
