The 2nd Annual Meeting of SUN will take place on 7-9 October 2015 in Venice, Italy. SUN project partners will present current results of Theme I, II and III of the project.
2nd Sustainable Nanotechnology School
A practical approach for understanding the environmental, health and safety implications of manufactured nanomaterials to foster their sustainable applications
A SUN, MODENA COST and ECONANOSORB training school
University Ca’ Foscari Venice (Italy) – campus Via Torino
Sunday 24th – Friday 29th January 2016
School purpose: The achievement of safe nanoproducts requires an understanding of the properties, biological interactions, fate, risks and environmental impacts of manufactured nanomaterials. The 2nd Sustainable Nanotechnology School aims to transfer the state of the art knowledge on these aspects from key experts to the new generation nano environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals. In order to do so the school will highlight the best available experimental and modeling approaches and practices for physicochemical characterization, (eco)toxicity testing, exposure, risk, and lifecycle assessment of nanotechnologies, taking various stakeholder perspectives and ethical issues into account. The 2nd Sustainable Nanotechnology School will revisit and complement the knowledge transferred during the 1st edition of the school with a strong focus on laboratory and modelling exercises.

SUN is co-organizing the MARINA NanoMICEX SUN Knowledge Foundation Workshop
11 March 2015
The aim of the workshop is to highlight the results achieved in the two long-term FP7 projects MARINA and nanoMICEX, which will end in October and March 2015, respectively, with a view to pool and discuss the projects’ outcomes for their application in the SUN project in particular, and their consideration in future research programmes in general.

SUN is hosting the EU-US Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts – A Joint Workshop 2015
12 – 13 March 2015
The US-EU dialogue, bridging nanoEHS research, has three goals:
- Engage in an active discussion about environmental, health, and safety questions for nano-enabled products;
- Encourage joint programs of work that would leverage resources;
- Support the Communities of Research;
The purpose of Joint Workshop between the European Union and the United States is to further promote and deepen the EU-U.S. collaboration on nanosafety research. The aim is also to develop the Communities of Research (CoR) collaboration and to bring them to a new level of activity.

Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference 2015
9-11 March 2015
The Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference is a forum for nanotechnology researchers, industry, and regulators to present and discuss research findings that lie in the interface of nanotechnology and sustainability. Our view of sustainability includes not only its environmental dimensions, but also the societal and economic ones. The conference program will address the critical aspects of sustainable nanotechnology such as life cycle thinking; environmental release and fate of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) ; environmental, occupational and consumer exposure to ENMs; environmental and human health impacts of ENMs; safe production, handling and disposal of ENMs; regulatory and industrial decision support for sustainable nanotechnology; nanotechnology applications for sustainability; societal implications of nanotechnology; curriculum and training for sustainable nanotechnology.
The Sustainable Nanotechnology Conference is being jointly organized by the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization, a USA based non-profit organization dedicated to advancing sustainable nanotechnology, and two large EU FP7 nanosafety projects SUN and GUIDENANO. Perspectives on the implications and applications of nanotechnology will be provided by leading experts in EU and USA. We also hope to foster new multi-sector collaborations in nanotechnology.
