Databases working group
The Databases WG of the EU Nanosafety Cluster is tasked with agreeing the structure and ontology of a European-wide database for project results and data, that will ensure longevity of data (beyond individual project lifetimes) and enable wide uptake and accessibility of the data to modellers, risk assessors and other researchers, as well as being able to communicate with other international databases.
The first step towards this is an assessment of the current state-of-the-art in available databases and nano-etymology, to ensure that we are not reinventing the wheel, but that our decisions are informed, and our final product meets the needs of the entire research community.
To this end, we will have a WG4 meeting as part of the NanoSafety Cluster meeting on Thursday 1st March 2012, in Dublin. All WG4 members and all interested NanoSafety Cluster members are invited to participate.
