Welcome to the GUIDEnano project site

GUIDEnano is a European research project funded under the 7th framework programme developing a web-based guidance tool, which will help the nano-enabled products users to design and apply of the most appropriate risk assessment & mitigation strategy for a specific product.

Methology, Innovation, Risk Evaluation.

Develop methodologies to evaluate the risks of a wide diversity of nano-enables products on human and environmental health throughout their life cycle. To develop innovative solutions to reduce the identified risks and provide a wide range of risk mitigation strategies and guidance on the selection of the most appropriate measures for each scenario. To integrate the risk evaluation and mitigation strategies into the GUIDEnano Tool and carry out an iterative process of performance testing, feedback and improvement to validate its suitability and applicability.


  • GUIDEnano will provide a Tool to be used by industry with the aim to complement existing regulations in different frameworks.
  • By using this Tool, industry will be able to evaluate and efficiently mitigate possible health risks for workers, consumers and the environment associated to the use of nanotechnologies.
  • The report generated by the GUIDEnano Tool will be designed to ensure transparency of the process and facilitate communication and acceptance of the Tool outcome by regulatory agencies, occupational safety and health agents, insurance companies, and consumer protection associations.
