EU project "NanoMag" selected into top 10 nanotechnology projects of the EU

07.07.2015

Magnetic nanoparticles have a great application potential in medical diagnostics and therapy. It is, therefore, important to determine their physical and chemical properties reliably and to express them in a standardized way. The project "NanoMag – Nanometrology Standardization Methods for Magnetic Nanoparticles", which has been supported by the EU since 2013 within the scope of FP7, has the goal to validate and harmonize the measurement procedures for magnetic nanoparticles. PTB's "Biosignals" Department coordinates the two central work packages "Analysis of Magnetic Nanoparticles" and "Standardization of Magnetic Nanoparticles".

At the EuroNanoForum 2015 in Riga, the "Nanomag" project was selected as one of the top 10 of more than 1000 EU research projects in the field of "Nanotechnology/New Materials". The EuroNanoForum is an EU nanotechnology conference with more than 1000 participants which has – since 2003 – been organized every two years by the current EU Council Presidency.
