Mission/Objectives: 

BioNanoNet is an Austrian network in the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) of bio- and nanotechnology with international visibility in the scientific areas of:

(1) nanotoxicology,

(2) sensor technology

(3) and health and safety, including (nano-)medicine and nanosafety.

Bio- and nanotechnologies are regarded as Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) for the 21st century and, as a central component of the European Union research and innovation strategy, have received significant funding. Bio- and nanotechnologies play a pivotal role in HORIZON 2020, the current EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
