Results from the "Better control of nano materials" initiative

In 2012-15, 6 million Danish kroner per year was allocated in the budget law to the initiative called “Better Control of Nanomaterials”. The objective was to increase understanding of exposure pathways and possible harmful effects of nanomaterials.

This page provides easy access to the 30 reports and other results produced as a part of this initiative.
