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.
