The achievement of safe nanoproducts requires an understanding of the properties, biological interactions, fate, risks and environmental impacts of manufactured nanomaterials (MN). The School aims to transfer the state-of-the-art knowledge on these aspects from key experts to the new generation of nano environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals.
The school topics are:
- Health and Ecological Risk Assessment of MN, including nano(eco)toxicology and exposure estimation
- Lifecycle Impact Assessment of MN
- Safe-by-Design nanomanufacturing
- Industrial, regulatory and ethical perspectives on nanotechnology
The course is structured to build an integrative understanding in the above topics, while providing an interactive learning environment and direct access to key experts from Europe and the United States.
The 1st Sustainable Nanotechnology School is especially designed for personnel from research and academic institutions as well as from industry, governmental agencies and hospital departments. The School is aimed at senior researchers, young scientists, PhD students and in fact anyone dealing with nanosciences, nanotechnologies, risk assessment and educational aspects of nanotechnology.
The registration deadline for this event has been extended to 20 November 2014.
