The Nanodatabase is developed by the DTU Environment, the Danish Ecological Council and Danish Consumer Council.

 

DTU Environment is responsible for the development of the database, the data collection, the scientific assessments of the nanomaterials used in the various consumer products and the NanoRiskCat categorization. The Nanodatabase is ‘living’ and will be amended as new data appears. The academic content of The Nanodatabase will be updated by DTU Environment through renewed searches in the scientific literature and input from the users of the database, producers and authorities.

The Danish Ecological Council has contributed with expert knowledge in the field of nanotechnology and has been co-author on most texts. The Danish Ecological Council has great knowledge in the field of chemicals and has in the last decades contributed greatly in the Danish and international debate, and has managed to sustain a political focus on chemical policy.

The Danish Consumer Council has also worked for many years with the chemical issue, focusing on banning harmful chemicals in consumer products. Our monthly magazine ‘Think’ had a major theme on Nanotchnology in the May 2012 issue. The Danish Consumer Council has developed the database and its technical parts and will continue to maintain nano.tænk.dk/en, and ensure that the database is constantly expanding with more products.

The Nanodatabase is funded by the European Research Council through the project EnvNano - Environmental Effects and Risk Evaluation of Engineered Nanomaterials (grant no. 281579) and was partly funded by the Danish Consumer Council and by the Villum Foundation (project nr. VKR022070) between 2011-2014.
