Launch of the NanoMesureFrance association

To support sustainable and responsible innovation in nanomaterials, LNE has joined forces with France Chimie and the French Federation of Beauty Companies (FEBEA) to create the NanoMesureFrance (NMF) association. This association aims to become a permanent structure to strengthen confidence in nanomaterials and associated innovations by working to bring together the French players concerned and to improve the quality and comparability of characterisation data.

The development of sustainable and responsible innovations related to nanomaterials requires better identification of these materials, the characterisation of various key physico-chemical properties and the assessment of nano-object emissions at different stages of the product life cycle.

In order to make progress on these issues, LNE, France Chimie and FEBEA have joined forces to create NanoMesureFrance (NMF), whose pre-standardisation activities will be carried out in close collaboration with major European and international initiatives in this field.

Federating, harmonising, sharing

NanoMesureFrance, whose implementation is supported by the State (via the Public Investment Bank) and the Île-de-France region, aims to

  • Bring together the French players involved in better characterisation of nanomaterials within a network accessible via a single entry point;
  • Promote collaboration and facilitate access to recognised and qualified resources and expertise
  • To set up pre-standardisation actions for tools and methods to meet the needs identified among its members;
  • To provide a framework for the coordination of French efforts on these subjects while ensuring the connection with key European and international initiatives (AFNOR, CEN, ISO, ASTM, VAMAS, OECD, EURAMET...) to better valorise this work;
  • Sharing information (technological and scientific watch, standards and reference documents, events, research funding opportunities) and good practices.

Supporting industry and accompanying innovation are two of LNE's key missions. These missions have now been fulfilled with the creation of NanoMesureFrance, through which we will continue to put all our expertise at the service of industry.
