• Build inventories of materials, research topics and directions relevant for nanomaterial use and exposure in nano- electronics manufacturing (WP1).
  • Identify gaps in knowledge and methodologies to assess the risk of engineered nanomaterials used in semiconductor manufacturing or incidentally released as by-products of the manufacturing process (WP2 and WP3).
  • Apply results for better governance, dissemination and outreach (WP4 and WP5).

Work package structure

Expected outcomes

  • better understanding the occupational hazards related to the use of nanomaterials
  • improvement of the assessment of the potential impact of nano-materials on workers and environment during semiconductor fabrication
  • Intensification of international cooperation with USA and Asia in the areas of standardization
  • sharing of information with other industries facing similar issues in understanding properties and controlling nanohazards
