Call for study proposals - Extended submission deadline

The deadline to receive study proposals for the EUON has been extended.

The new submission deadline is 1 August.

The EUON is looking for study topics that address:

  • questions related to the health and safety aspects of nanomaterials, including hazard and risk assessment, exposure to nanomaterials or worker safety and protection;
  • specific issues surrounding the uses of nanomaterials; or
  • information about markets for nanomaterials (e.g. the market for specific materials such as graphene or specific market sectors).

The scope of the study can be on nanomaterials in general, a specific nanomaterial, or a defined group of nanomaterials. Studies are run for 3 to 9 months and should be based on desk research and surveys (should not require laboratory research). If you are unsure about the duration or scope of your proposal, your submission is still useful, as the EUON team will be able to evaluate the feasibility of your proposal.

All proposals will be assessed by the EUON team and if selected, they will be carried out through the EUON’s existing procurement channels. The outcome and study reports will be made publicly available on the EUON website.

Your proposal should include a title, and a brief description (maximum 1 page) elaborating the area of investigation, and why you believe the EUON should address this particular knowledge gap. 

Note: Submitting a proposal does not constitute a commitment by the EUON to carry out a study on the topic. If your topic is selected, the EUON may contact you for further information.
