Environment, Health, and Safety
The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory- INL is an Intergovernmental Organisation created to foster interdisciplinary research in Nanotechnology and Nanoscience. Aiming to become a vital part of Europe’s scientific area, INL provides a high-tech research environment addressing major challenges in nanomedicine, nanotechnology applied to environmental & food control nanoelectronics, and nanomachines and molecular manipulation at nanoscale.
The overall aim of LIFE NanoMONITOR is to improve the use of environmental monitoring data to support the implementation of REACH regulation and promote the protection of human health and the environment when dealing with ENMs. Within the EU REACH Regulation, a chemical safety assessment report, including risk characterisation ratio (RCR), must be provided for any registered ENMs. In order to address these objectives, the project partners have developed a rigorous methodology encompassing the following aims:
Our team specializes in metamaterial research, nanofabrication, and computational electromagnetics; bridging the gap between the theoretical and the possible. With our in-house design, access to world-class nanocomposite research, and nanofabrication expertise, we are able to develop a wide array of metamaterial applications which encompass several industries including aerospace and defence, healthcare, energy, education, and clean-tech.
Our company is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia and has offices in London, England and Pleasanton, California.
