Global Nanomaterials Safety: PROSPECT Final Dissemination Workshop

Due to popular demand, PROSPECT, the public-private partnership dedicated to supporting the safe and responsible exploitation of nanomaterials, is set to host a final dissemination workshop showcasing and celebrating it successes.

Having directly contributed to the global safety assessment of nanomaterials through its work with the OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN), PROSPECT would like to invite you to come and see the results it has achieved in supporting the safe and responsible exploitation of nanomaterials, and developing a better understanding of their impact on humans and the environment on the examples on nano-CeO2 and nano-ZnO.

It will be opened by a keynote speech by the Chief Scientist of DEFRA, Professor Ian Boyd.

This event is free to attend, but be sure to register early as space is limited! To register, please send an email to

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
