Description The EU NanoSafety Cluster is a DG RTD NMP initiative to maximise the synergies between the existing FP6, FP7 and H2020 projects addressing all aspects of nanosafety including toxicology, ecotoxicology, exposure assessment, mechanisms of interaction, risk assessment and standardisation. Participation in the NanoSafety cluster is voluntary for projects that commenced prior to April 2009, and is compulsory for nano-EHS projects started since April 2009. The terms of reference of the NanoSafety Cluster define its role and are included as an appendix to all new projects.
