This project started in April 2020 and will run until 2023.

NanoHarmony will outline specific research actions of regulatory research nature to cover existing gaps in Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) test guidelines and guidance documents development;
• Establish integration of other public and private resources (funding or labour) to adapt current and develop new OECD test guidelines and OECD guidance documents;
• Establish maximum synergy of actions across industrial sectors and international cooperation;
• Support the completion of the elaborated documents by the relevant international organisations involving the OECD Member States and relevant EU agencies;
• Establish very close cooperation with Member States, OECD, OECD business network, Joint Research Centre, ECHA, EU and Member State agencies to act as leads and co-leads for the test guidelines and guidance documents to be developed.
