Event Description

The increasing use of engineered nanomaterials, especially nanoparticles (NP), in various applications will likely lead to a significant exposure to these new materials. Over 500 NP-based consumer products are already marketed, such as sunscreens and cosmetics, detergents, pigments, tires, lubricants and healthcare/medical application products. There is an urgent need to assess the potential hazard and then the potential health risk posed by these new materials. This has initiated an integrated approach including advanced physico-chemical characterization, exposure and (eco)toxicology assessment to overcome the current limitations in their risk estimation. The 1st Nanosafety Autumn School will provide the "state-of-the-art" on scientific knowledge and technical tools available for an integrated assessment of nanotechnology products. The school will offer an interactive learning environment in which participants will use a combination of approaches to update their skills and to discuss current issues pertaining to human and environmental nanotechnology.

The First Nanosafety Autumn School is principally designed for personnel from Industry, Governmental Agencies, Hospital Departments, Research and Academic Institutions. The School is aimed at people who work on safety issues and epidemiology, as well as senior and junior researchers, post-graduates, Ph.D. students and in fact anyone dealing with nanosciences, nanotechnologies and related topics with an interest in Human and Environmental Safety.

I am a M.Tech. Student in Nanoscience and Technology at Delhi College of Engineering, Delhi, India. I want to attend this event as I have keen interest in nanostructures, their synthesis and new innovations that could lead to more vast and spihisticated use of nanomaterials. I need monetary favors to attend this program. Kindly assist.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
