This WP deals with the communication between our project and the wider nanotechnology community. It establishes various mechanisms to ensure collaboration with and feedback. The goals are to collaboratively develop interoperability documents together with definitions of personas and use cases that capture the community needs and working practices.
The primary objective of this work package is to develop and disseminate a comprehensive ontology for the nanosafety domain, encompassing nanomaterials and all information relating to their characterisation, as well as information describing relevant experimental paradigms, biological interactions, safety indications and experimental paradigms.
This WP will design, implement and provide the data infrastructure and search capabilities, supporting all aspects of ENM characterization, namely synthesis and processing, physicochemical characterization, LCA, environmental and health hazards assessment, high throughput and high content datasets.
To ensure the ontology and data warehouse developed in WP2 and WP3 meets the safety-by-design and community needs, WP4 will develop computational infrastructure capable to analyse and extract knowledge out of diverse types of ENM-related theoretical descriptors, experimental data and associated metadata, including provenance of experimental data and experimental conditions and protocols.
