Knowledge Base Team

This working group has been created to develop and maintain a globally recognized, credible knowledge base in nanotechnology that is readily accessible to the public. To accomplish this objective, the group has developed strategic tasks to provide the following knowledge base offerings:

  • A searchable database of peer-reviewed technical articles focused on EHS issues for nanotechnology which is continuously updated   (EHS Database) 
  • A set of Frequently Asked Questions on various topics of EHS interest within nanotechnology that are answered by experts in field  (FAQ page)
  • An internationally developed nanomaterial environmental health and safety research needs assessment (More Information)
  • Integrated linkages to other database offerings that expand accessible information to planned research programs, as well as nanoparticle characterization information   (complementary databases)
