This is the web site of the MARINA project, a major new European Commission Framework 7 project to develop reference methods for managing the risks of engineered nanonomaterials. Led by Dr. Lang Tran, IOM, MARINA aims within its 39 month timescale to develop specific reference methods for all the main steps in managing the potential risk of engineered nanomaterials (ENM). MARINA will address the four central themes in the risk management paradigm for ENM: Materials, Exposure, Hazard and Risk.
The methods developed by MARINA will be:(i) based on beyond-state-of-the-art understanding of the properties, interaction and fate of ENM in relation to human health and the quality of the environment and will either (ii) be newly developed or adapted from those existing but ultimately, they will be compared/validated and harmonised/standardised as reference methods for managing the risk of ENM. MARINA will develop a strategy for Risk Management including monitoring systems and measures for minimising massive exposure via explosion or environmental spillage.
