Résumé du projet

SERENADE LABEX (Safer(r) Ecodesign Research and Education applied for NAnomaterial Development) started in 04-2012. It creates a dynamic multidisciplinary network of 13 academic research laboratories and industries to design tomorrow’s nanomaterials that are safer for both humans and the environment. SERENADE benefits from state-of-the-art analytical facilities (Equipex NanoID, iCeint mesocosms, Ibisa, Animex, etc). SERENADE does not focus only on the design phase, but addresses nanosafety during the entire life cycle of nanoproducts. After 5 years, and a mid-term review, most of evaluation criteria indicate that the status of the project fit with the initial roadmap. In agreement with the reviews of the external advisory board, the steering committee funded 15 PhDs, 21 Post-Docs, 3 chairs and up to 1 150 k€ of seed funds and equipment as planned. The number of peer reviewed papers and book chapters increased steadily from 1, 7, 27, 39, 46 in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively, published in journals with average IF of 6.5 for 2016. By March 2017, 18 new papers were published and Serenade was quoted in about 400 conferences. SERENADE initiated in 2015 7 integrated Case studies aiming at testing the SERENADE ‘Safer by design’ methodology on various product types: photocatalytic paints, sunscreen, Nano and food packaging, Nano-wire, End-of-life and nano-wastes. SERENADE education actions targeted master students (new course contents offered within Master programs) and the workforces (Action nano defi, NANoCERT, PNS – safety showroom). The network interacts with agencies such as OECD, ISO, ANSES, Ministries, European Commission for regulatory and standardization purposes, also reviewers for proposals calls (ERANET SIINN…). SERENADE also developed a vigorous outreach program with various competitiveness clusters. Overall SERENADE generated more than 6 M€ of leverage mainly through coordination and participations to FP7 and H2020 EU funded projects.
