Leibniz Network Nanosafety
The Leibniz research network “Nanosafety” addresses safety-relevant questions that are provoked by nanomaterials or nanoproducts. In addition, security related topics are addressed that are enabled by such materials. The main questions can be summed up by the keywords “understand”, “develop”, “explain”. The research network is an association of six institutions, focusing on material science, health and toxicology, pneumology, the working environment, scientific databases, and the communication of knowledge.
The Leibniz Association connects 86 independent research institutions that range in focus from the natural, engineering and environmental sciences via economics, spatial and social sciences to the humanities. Leibniz institutes address issues of social, economic and ecological relevance. They conduct knowledge-driven and applied basic research, maintain scientific infrastructure and provide research-based services.
