The goal of PrecisionTox is to improve chemical safety assessment to better protect human health and the environment by using non-traditional test species, multiple fields of knowledge, and powerful computational approaches to understand which chemicals are toxic and why.
DaNa4.0 is a science communication project dealing with the safety of innovative materials. Complex, toxicological issues from current materials research are presented in a generally understandable way for non-scientists (interested consumers, journalists, politicians, NGOs, etc.) on a website.
PlasticsFatE - Plastics Fate and Effects in the human body aims at improving our present understanding of the impact of micro- and nano-plastics (MP/NP) and associated additives/adsorbed contaminants (A/C) in the human body. To do so, reliable and validated methods will be developed that are able to generate the science-based data we need. PlasticsFatE is a 48-month project funded by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme of the European Union. The project will run from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2025.
