Safe and sUstainable by desigN Strategies for HIgh performance multi-component NanomatErials
Developing and implementing simple, robust, and cost-effective Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) strategies for materials and products incorporating advanced multi-component nanomaterials.
SUNSHINE is an industry-oriented project, where leading research and technology organisations will cooperate with SMEs and large industries to develop and implement simple, robust, and cost-effective Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) strategies for materials and products incorporating advanced multi-component nanomaterials. To this end, the project will establish a user-friendly e-infrastructure to foster dialogue, collaboration, and information exchange between actors along entire product supply chains.
RIVM is the leader of Workpackage 9 (WP9). In addition, RIVM will contribute to
- the development of the SIA e-infrastructure (WP1);
- environmental fate, in vitro human and environmental toxicity studies as well as in vivo human biodistribution studies in WP2;
- environmental fate modelling in WP3;
- the development and implementation of the similarity assessment, grouping and read-across approaches in WP4;
- Regulatory Preparedness by providing recommendations for adapting the existing regulatory guidance and standard guidelines for MCNMs (WP6);
- the international collaboration activities, especially with the USA (WP7);
- the stakeholder engagement, dissemination and exploitation activities of the project (WP8).
RIVM colleagues involved: Lya Hernandez and Agnes Oomen.
SUNSHINE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 952924.
