The Second Sustainable Nanotechnology School – a SUN, MODENA COST and ECONANOSORB training school – will be held from 24 to 29 January 2016 in Venice, Italy.
24 January 2016 - 29 January 2016
The FP7-funded SUN (Sustainable Nanotechnologies) project, one of the event sponsors, is the first to address the entire lifecycle of nanotechnologies to ensure holistic nanosafety evaluation. The project will incorporate scientific findings from over 30 European projects, national and international research programmes and transatlantic co-operations into tools and guidelines for sustainable manufacturing, easily accessible by industries, regulators and other stakeholders.
The Sustainable Nanotechnology School offers a practical approach for understanding the environmental, health and safety implications of manufactured nanomaterials to foster their sustainable applications. The school aims to transfer state of the art knowledge on relevant topics from key experts to the new generation of nano environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals. The event is especially designed for personnel from research and academic institutions as well as from industry, governmental agencies and hospital departments.
