 Project objective

The most recent scientific investigations in the field of sustainable nano-agrochemicals show that foliar application of copper nanoparticles (CuNPs) to plant leaves can be new strategy to reduce Cu deficiency in wheat, decrease Cu bulk emissions to the environment and reduce diseases (e.g. wheat leaf rust, tan spot, and Fusarium head blight) that are heavily affecting wheat production sector in the EU and globally. Therefore, resolving the environmental fate of CuNPs after foliar application will be an important step for their practical use. The goal of this Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship and SafeCEREAL project is to allow reliable assessment of environmental risks and benefits of using CuNPs in agriculture. Major research targets are to investigate the complex interactions between CuNPs and wheat after foliar application (WP1), gain further knowledge of the possible CuNPs’ interaction with soils under more realistic scenarios (WP2), and perform risk assessment of CuNPs’ release to groundwater by reproducing environmentally relevant release scenarios (WP3). The achievement of these goals requires a multidisciplinary approach including environmental nanotechnology and chemistry, plant physiology and applied geophysics – all of which are part of the research conducted at the University of Novi Sad Faculty of Sciences, Serbia, who will readily engage all its resources and mobilize its international partnerships. This fellowship will involve carefully planned public outreach activities and focus on a wide range of transferable and technical skills that will strengthen the Applicant, the Host, and the scientific community in the European Research Area and globally. Importantly, this project will lead to greater professional maturity of the Applicant by providing her the interdisciplinary expertise to design, lead and deliver future research projects; and identifying her as leading young scientist in the new area of research focused on realistic scenarios.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SAFECEREAL" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
