Nanopinion: Ten years of safety assessment of graphene - some lessons learned
14 November 2023


Read the latest Nanopinion by Prof. Bengt Fadeel, Dr Alberto Bianco and Prof. Maurizio Prato where they discuss the three most important lessons they have learned during the largest-ever research programme on graphene in the EU – the “Graphene Flagship” project (2013 – 2023). 

Nanomaterials and health

Are substances in nanoforms more dangerous than they are in their normal size? Some are and some are not. Just like any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed separately.
