NanoMONITOR, a project partly funded by the European Commission Life+ with grant agreement LIFE14 ENV/ES/000662, is intended to develop a real-time information and monitoring system to support the risk assessment of nanomaterials under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation.  The overall objective of the NanoMONITOR project is to improve the use of environmental monitoring data to support the implementation of REACH and to promote the protection of human health and the environment.  On April 10, 2017, NanoMONITOR announced that a demo version of its web-based application, a distributed client-server system, is now available.  NanoMONITOR states:

The software application will support the import of “historical” monitoring data; the capture of monitoring data from sensors in real-time; real-time QA/QC for data imports, data storage including automatic incremental backup strategies, data  (basic descriptive statistics), graphical display, a range of analytical tools for exposure- and risk analysis,  and the prediction (simulation) of indoor- and ambient concentration (counts and mass based) values, together with data conversion- and export tools, and the management of associated META data (partly structured, partly as free (multi-media data for full text search) for the interpretation of all monitoring data holdings.
