The NanoImpact Conference will take place on Monte Verità in Southern Switzerland, March 12-17, 2017.
The last 10 years saw an enormous growth in nanosafety funding and published research. Answers are now demanded whether these new materials represent a novel threat to humans and the environment and whether nanomaterials need to be assessed differently and more stringent than conventional materials. The overall goal of the planned conference will be to integrate the scientific knowledge available about nanomaterial exposure, fate, effects and risks in the environment.
The deadline for abstract submission is November 15, 2016. The meeting will be limited to 120 people in total.
