Event Description

For the second year, the University Ca' Foscari of Venice (Italy), in collaboration with IOM (UK), Karolinska Istitutet (Sweden) and Edinburgh Napier Univeristy (UK) proposes a five-day-school for Ph.D. students, researchers and industrial personnel dealing with nanotechnologies.

The school is planned to give a complete and advanced overview of the actual knowledge and gaps on nanosciences, starting from material characterization (available techniques and their limits), environmental and occupational exposure, toxicology and eco-toxicology, risk and life cycle assessment, concluding with discussions on industrial interests and ethical aspects.

International experts in various nano-fields, from EU and USA, will hold the lessons, which will be followed by 15-30 minutes discussions. One afternoon will be dedicated to the tutorials, with brainstorming sessions and parallel journal clubs.

The registration to the school includes the school participation, the course materials and attendance certificate, lunches and coffee-breaks and two social events (Venice guided tour and concert in Venice).
The registration procedure is available on-line on the website of the school.

Only 40 places are available!

Dear Organizers,
I would like to request you for your assistance of mine to apply for an eventual Invited Speaker at your Scond Nanosafety Autmun School, in Italy. I am working as Associate Professor, Institute of Mechanics, Bulg. Acad. of Sci., Bulgaria. My recent presentations (2008-EthicSchool, DVD-ROM, 24-29 Aug 2008, University of Twente, etherland- oral present, with full fin support; 2008- 1st Europ. School o Ellipsometry, 21-25 Sept 2008, Ost, Italy, (A grant from School);2009 ( BURSARY;, full grant from EMBO; Prominas Workshop Grenoble, and Rare Diseases II - with poster presentations of mine have been appreiated high of the meetings. I would be very grateful to you of your assistance and thank you in advance.

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
