Nanodevice Seminar at X2012: Thursday, July 5th (1:30 – 4:50 pm)
Following the last session of the X2012 conference, the EU funded Nanodevice project will host a free seminar to showcase the next generation of instruments being developed for nanoparticle exposure measurement in the workplace. This seminar is designed to inform occupational hygienists, exposure scientists, safety officers and other health professionals on how the hazard identification and exposure measurement challenges from nanomaterials are being met. For further information and notification of your attendance please go to

Welcome and introduction: Aims, objectives and scope of Nanodevice.
Dr Kai Savolainen Co-ordinator of the Nanodevice project (Finish Institute of Occupational Health). (15 minutes)

How do you identify which nanomaterials are harmful? Update on the hazard assessment of nano-objects from the Nanodevice project.
Rosemary Gibson (Health & Safety Laboratory, UK) (20 minutes)

Overview of the sampling and measurement needs and the devices developed.
Garry Burdett (Health & Safety Laboratory) (20 minutes).

Examples of near market devices developed by Nanodevice:

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
