The European Nanotechnology Community Informatics Platform: Bridging data and disciplinary gaps for industry and regulators (NanoCommons)

    Project Details


    Creating a community framework and infrastructure for reproducible science, and in particular in silico workflows for nanomaterials and beyond, by:
    (i) integration and federation of existing NMs characterisation and interaction mechanisms for knowledge, protocols anddata (beyond simple toxicity), along with quality assurance criteria and underpinning ontologies,
    (ii) compilation, development and expert support of computational tools for mechanistic and statistical modelling, read-across, grouping, safe-by-design and life cycle assessment to the broader user community, and benchmarking of their predictive power; and
    (iii) provision of (virtual) access to its KnowledgeBase, modelling toolbox and workflow optimisation and supporting expertise to facilitate commercialisation of nanotechnology-derived products.

    The availability of a nanosafety knowledge infrastructure, that organises data, makes it accessible, integrates computational tools for risk assessment and decision support, enables their validation and facilitates the necessary grouping and such new approaches for NMs will be a critical factor in reducing this cost.
    NanoCommons addresses this gap.
