FP7 ERA-NET on Nanosafety
Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

23 April 2015

Development and implementation of a common database platform

D2.8 is Available for Download

The European ERA-NET "Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" (SIINN) has as its primary aim the promotion of the rapid transfer of the results of nanoscience and nanotechnology research into industrial applications by helping to create reliable conditions. Therefore, a dedicated SIINN data platform has been installed, based on NANOhub as the portal (http://www.nanohub.eu/), for which the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission is the provider. The SIINN NANOhub portal is the backbone for the structured data storage and data retrieval within SIINN.

JRC is currently developing a migration tool to transfer data from NANOhub to the new IUCLID version 6. As soon as this tool is developed and tested (in the frame of the NANoREG project), also the SIINN data will be transferred. The integration of the SIINN data platform contents into follow-up projects like ProSafe or NANoREG II is currently being discussed.

The SIINN NANOhub database is only accessible to SIINN partners and members of project consortia resulting from the SIINN calls. For stakeholders interested in the data base an access can be granted in consultation with the SIINN consortium or the consortium of the follow-up projects, respectively.

So far, the first validated data included in the SIINN data platform are referring to the substance TiO2 in the forms of Rutile, Anatase and Brookite. Taking into account the great amount of data existing in the field, the use of existing data for this activity has been examined and the following aspects have been pursued:
  • including of data of several studies with the same nanomaterial (e.g. TiO2 anatase), but with different biological material and with different end-points
  • including of data referring to different TiO2 polymorph forms, but with the same biological material and with specific endpoints
  • including of data highlighting the effect of MNM concentration, as well as the influence of the time for interaction with a biological material
  • including of data regarding TiO2 degraded surface-treated nanoparticles
  • including information about the effect of translocated nanoparticulate TiO2
  • including new specific endpoints by taking into consideration some data obtained in the Laboratory of Chemical Thermodynamics (from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Romanian Academy) as concerns not only physicochemical, but also thermochemical properties of TiO2 polymorphs synthesized in the laboratory and by comparing with commercial samples.

As data will become available from the projects resulting from the three SIINN calls, these data will be integrated in the database as well.

Any feedback is more than welcome. Please send it to: siinn@temas.ch
