VITO is active in the field of nanosafety through many expertises: characterizing of exposure scenarios, measurement of release and exposure, product testing, evaluation of environmental and human health impact, risk assessment and mitigation in support of safe innovation in nanomaterials and nanotechnologies. Also interdisciplinary research dedicated to consumer safety and nanomedicine applications is performed. To support all these nanosafety related activities, a wide range of characterization and measurement techniques are available in-house.
