Online Survey on NanoSafety Databases

The EU NanoSafety Cluster WG4 (Database) has launched an online survey on nanosafety databases. The questionnaire is online available until 18th April 2014.

 

This survey is a first in a biannual continuous effort and attempt to collect, organise and share up-to-date information about NanoSafety related databases worldwide. The resulting list of databases will continuously be updated with new valuable insight along its development. The objective is help owners and administrators of NanoSafety related databases to broaden awareness of their databases and to ensure interoperability of data.

 

The survey is split into sections with questions and multiple choice type options. Topics typically cover aspects like; who is the owner of the database; what are the contents of database; how to access the data; how the data is organised; intellectual property aspects; data download instructions; semantic technologies; and funding availability/proceeds.

 

It should not take more than 15 minutes of your time to complete the survey, and many questions are optional. All willing participants are kindly asked to complete the survey by April 18th, 2014.
