NanoMILE (Engineered nanomaterial mechanisms

NanoMILE-logo.pngof interactions with living systems and the environment: a universal framework for safe nanotechnology)

  • Funding : European Union FP7 Large Scale Project (budget 13 ME)
  • 2013 – 2017
  • The NanoMILE project intends to establish a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of nanomaterial interactions with living systems and the environment, across the entire life cycle of nanomaterials and in a wide range of target species. The project will identify critical properties (physico-chemical descriptors) that confer the ability to induce harm in biological systems. This is key to allowing these features to be considered in nanomaterial production (“safety by design”)
  • UniGe Responsible : Serge STOLL
  • Post Doc and PhD student : Fabrice Carnal and Olena Oriekhova
  • Partners : all NanoMILE partners (29)

NanoFASE (Nanomaterial Fate and Speciation in the Environment)

  • Funding : Office of the State Secretariat for Education, Research, and Innovation (SERI) and European Union H2020 (budget 11 ME)
  • 2015 – 2019
  • The overarching objective of NanoFASE is to deliver an integrated Exposure Assessment Framework (protocols, models, parameter values, guidance ...) that - Allows all stakeholders to assess the environmental fate of nano releases from industrial nano-enabled products, -Is acceptable in regulatory registrations and can be integrated into the EUSES model for REACH assessment, - Allows industry a cost-effective product-to-market process, and - Delivers the understanding at all levels to support dialogue with public and consumers. The ambition is to reach a level of ENM Fate and exposure assessment at least comparable with that for conventional chemicals
  • UniGe Responsible : Serge STOLL
  • Post Doc and PhD student : Fabrice Carnal and Arnaud Clavier
  • Partners : all NanoFASE partners (42)

FATE-Nano

  • Funding : SSIGE (Société Suisse des Industriels de l’Eau et du Gaz) et SIG (Services Industriels de Genève)
  • 2017 – 2019
  • The objective of this project is to investigate the fate and transformation of manufactured nanoparticles through the water treatment systems used for the production of drinking waters. Focus will be made on the coagulation-flocculation processes so as to improve the removal of the nanoparticles and isolate the key parameters
  • UniGe Responsible : Serge STOLL
  • PhD student : Lina Marcela Ramirez
