The Center for Environmental NanoScience & Risk (CENR) is organizing the 9th International Conference on the Environmental Effects of Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials, which will be held from September 7th –11th, 2014 in Columbia, South Carolina, USA.
The US National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), on behalf of the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the Committee on Technology National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), will hold a workshop entitled "Sensor Fabrication, Integration, and Commercialization" on September 11 and 12, 2014.
Many countries have launched mandatory reporting schemes concerning nanomaterials, others are contemplating about the pros and cons of doing so, and nearly all industrial countries are in the process of policy development that are specifically concerned with what the potential risks of nanomaterials could be.
This workshop brings together experts from diverse disciplines to explore ways in which Alternative Testing Strategies (ATS) may be combined to create a Weight of Evidence (WOE) or “multiple models” approach to inform context –specific decisions about risk from exposure to novel nanoscale materials. The goal is to advance a common understanding of the state of the science, early lessons, current opportunities, and next steps for developing ATS for use in decision making for nanoscale materials.
Nanoforum (official website www.nanoforum.it) is the main Italian expo-conference born with the purpose to foster the transfer of knowledge from Research (public or private) to Business (in particular SMEs) in the field of micro, nano and advanced technologies.
OpenTox Euro 2014 meeting will discuss latest developments in predictive toxicology, including in silico modelling and application development, integrated data analysis, systems biology, visualisation, cheminformatics and bioinformatics.
Discussions will include consideration of current research and development directions in addition to risk assessment and regulatory and industry needs, including Read Across and Weight of Evidence.
NIA's David Carlander is to present at this event.
BIOSPAIN is the largest biotech event organized by a national bioindustry association in Europe and one of the largest in the world by the number of one-to-one meetings (2.775) and companies participating (762).
Now in its 4th successful year, Europe’s leading export control conference returns at this critical time, with a focus on Dual-Use; and will again, bring together leading officials, NGOs, industry professionals and trade experts of top companies.
The 4th Forum on European Export Controls will update you with all latest export controls regulation, sanctions updates and compliance requirements with European export control regimes for dual use goods.
Europe's leading event for the biobased economy comes to the great historic French province, Champagne-Ardenne, to a venue in the region of Reims. Only 45 minutes by train from Paris and just 30 minutes away from the nearest Airport, this easily accessible location for 2014 will play host to over 800 professionals working within the dynamic and sustainable biobased industries sector, to meet, debate and help shape the future of this burgeoning sector.
