Development and scaled Implementation of safe by design tools and guidelines for multicomponent nanomaterials and High Aspect Ratio Nanoparticles

DIAGONAL aims to bring new methodologies to guarantee long-term nanosafety.
How? By filling the gap in:

 Risk Assessment

 Risk Management

 Risk Governance

The project relies on experimental and modelling research to understand and ultimately predict interactions among the nanomaterial components and their transformation products with the environment, promoting a better understanding of potential adverse effects on human health and biota.

Reduction of CO2 Emissions


Economic & Societal Impacts

DIAGONAL will contribute to build a trusted environment for industries, especially SMEs, to fulfil REACH* requirements, helping to increase the safety of nano-enabled products along their life cycle, while encouraging more industries to start using nanomaterials at reduced business-related risks.


*Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation that addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment.
