About the NanoMag project

The objectives of the EU financed NanoMag project are to standardize, improve and redefine analyzing methods of magnetic nanoparticles. Using improved manufacturing technologies, synthesized magnetic nanoparticles with specific properties will be analyzed with a multitude of characterization techniques (focusing on both structural as well as magnetic properties). Bringing the results together will give a self-consistent picture which describes how structural and magnetic properties are interrelated.

NanoMag M30 Project Meeting


On the 18th to 20th of April the Nanomag M30 project meeting was held at DTU in Lyngby, just north of Kopenhagen. In total 39 representatives from all partners attended to the meeting. Also the second project review meeting (RV2) was held during these days. The European Commission was represented with Keith Dingwall, our Project Technical Adviser. 

Thanks to all of you who participated and contributed with presentations and a lot of interesting discussions! A special thanks to our friends at DTU for hosting this very nice meeting!

E-Learning course now available online


The e-learning course on magnetic nanoparticles and biomedical applications are now available online (hosted by NPL): Magnetic Nanoparticles: Standardisation and Biomedical Applications

This course aims to:

  • Develop awareness of the pros and cons deriving from the use of MNPs, in order to sustain an informed opinion on this topic.
  • Emphasise the benefits deriving from the standardisation and improvement in analysis methods of magnetic nanoparticles
  • Provide the foundation to enable further study in this field

Two of modules are available now and more will come soon:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Magnetic Nanoparticles
  • Module 2: Biomedical Applications of Magnetic Nanoparticles
  • Module 3: Characterisation of Magnetic Nanoparticles (coming soon)
  • Module 4: Relevance of Standardised Analysis Methods of Magnetic Nanoparticles (coming soon)
The course has been created as a part of the NanoMag project.

NanoMag M24 Project Meeting


The NanoMag M24 Project meeting was held on the 5th to the 6th of November in Santander in the northern Spain. The meeting was successfully hosted by the University of Cantabria. In total 38 representatives from almost all of the consortium partners attended the meeting. The European Commission was represented by our Project Technical Adviser, Keith Dingwall.

Thanks a lot to everyone who contributed and making this to another productive and very nice project meeting!
