Nanomaterial Fate and Speciation in the Environment

The Gordon Research Seminar on Environmental Nanotechnology

The Gordon Research Seminar on Environmental Nanotechnology is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The event will take place on 1 & 2 June 2019 in at the Jordan Hotel at Sunday River, Newry, ME, United States.

The 2019 meeting will host three engaging science sessions, featuring talks from submitted student and post-doc abstracts. Topics include 1) the design and use of nanomaterials for environmental applications, 2) novel methodologies enabling the study of the potential negative impacts of nano-enabled products, and 3) public policy and educational outreach as they apply to the sustainable use of nanotechnology. An important goal of the 2019 meeting is to inspire attendees to consider the broader context of their research efforts. Attendees will have abundant opportunities for discussion and networking with both peers and leaders in the field from a variety of career paths during poster sessions, a mentoring session, a networking lunch, and informal social activities.

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 4, 2019GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by March 1, 2019

SETAC Europe 29th Annual Meeting

The 29th Annual Meeting of SETAC Europe will take place from 26 to 30 May 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. This year the meeting will be helf under the slogan of One Environment. One Health. Sustainable Societies.

SETAC Europe is one of five Geographic Units (GU) of the global Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), established to promote and undertake activities of SETAC in Europe, and to support activities of SETAC in the Middle East and Russia. As a Geographic Unit we share the mission of SETAC.

SETAC Europe is dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of stressors, chemicals, and technology on the environment. The Society also provides an open forum for scientists and institutions engaged in the study of environmental problems, management and regulation of natural resources, education, research and development, and manufacturing.

NIA's 8th Annual Symposium

The Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) will hold its 8th Annual Symposium on 27th of March 2019 in Brussels. Join industrial producers of nanomaterials, expert service providers, end-users, policy makers and regulators for a day of presentations, discussion and networking. Presentations will cover a wide range of topics including: Nanotechnology in industry 4.0, How to add nano-value to products, Global regulatory and standards update; Regulatory priorities and Managing nano waste.

NanoFASE partner from Eawag - Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, Ralf Kaegi will be presenting the NanoFASE work on nanomaterial transformation in and release from managed waste streams

If you are active within nanomaterials development, you should attend and network with industry, research and policy stakeholders. NIA welcomes companies new to nanomaterials to help them understand successful integration into their processes and you will meet people who can share good practise and expert services.

The event is free of charge for all NIA Members. Non-Members can join us for €200, but if their organization joins within 8 weeks of the Symposium, the €200 fee will be reimbursed (1 reimbursement per organisation).

3rd EU-Asia Dialogue on Nanosafety

The EU-Asia Dialogue on Nanosafety is an international event which brings together experts from Asia and Europe. The main purpose of this gathering is to share knowledge with regards to the safety of Nanotechnology, get insights on actual and future human and environmental Nanosafety research, and discuss how to develop them to a thematic collaboration.

The 3rd EU-Asia Dialogue will be held in conjunction with ASEAN summit 2019 hosted by the Ministry of Science and Technology Thailand (MOST), Bangkok, Thailand, in order to encourage partnership in the science, technology, and innovations developed between ASEAN and its trade partners.

The past two Dialogues were held in Tehran on November 28th, 2017 and Vienna on October 29th, 2018, respectively.
