Nanomaterial Fate and Speciation in the Environment

8th NRW Nano Conference

In 2018, the NRW Nano Conference will take place for the eighth time – on 21 and 22 November in the Dortmund Congress Centre. Other event formats such as business pitches (short company presentations) and a poster exhibition complete the programme.

The NRW Nano Conference is Germany’s largest conference with international appeal in the field of nanotechnologies. It takes place every two years at changing locations. More than 700 experts from science, industry and politics meet for two days to promote research and application of the key technology at the network meeting.

The eighth edition of the NRW Nano Conference is organized by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Cluster NanoMicroMaterialsPhotonics.NRW and the Economic Development Agency Dortmund. For the first time, the conference language will be English only in order to account for the international character of science and industry.

Third NanoSafety Forum for Young Scientists

The EU NanoSafety Cluster and the Horizon 2020 ACEnano  are organizing the 3rd NanoSafety Forum for Young Scientists. The event is a follow-up of the first two meetings, which took place in Syracuse, Sicily and Visby, Sweden, and will take place in Valletta, Malta, on 10th an 11th September 2018.

The event is an open forum for young (students, post docs and others) and senior scientists working in EU-funded, national and industrial nanosafety projects. The Forum will also offer everyone the opportunity to network, promote cross-project collaboration, exchange scientific knowledge and learn from each other.

The Forum will consist of both oral and poster presentations, which will allow Young Scientists showcase their work and express fresh ideas. At the same time, keynote talks by experienced experts will also take place, on matters of high scientific interest for the wider NanoSafety community.

Information on the registration process can be found here.

An optional DLS course, organised by ACEnano and Malvern is also available between 11-13 September 2018. For further information and  expression of interest please contact Sophie Briffa (BriffaSM@bham.ac.uk)

For registration inquiries, please contact Thomas (Tom) Carney (T.Carney@bham.ac.uk).
