Joint Event - ICEENN 2019 and NanoFASE Concluding Conference

The NanoFASE concluding conference will be organized in Vienna in coordination with the 14th International Conference on Environmental Effects of Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials - ICEENN 2019. ICEENN 2019 is the leading international conference on environmental nanoscience. ICEENN brings together researchers, industry and regulators to discuss recent advances in our understanding of the fate and behaviour of nanomaterials, their applications and possible effects in the environment and the key issues relating to maintaining the economic and social benefits of nanotechnology.

Register now!

In September, ICEENN 2019 is jointly organized by the Department of Environmental Geosciences at the University of Vienna and NanoFASE project. This offers participants a whole week of fascinating research, applications and training on topics spanning from basic research to application, modeling and regulatory aspects.

Contributions are invited to the following topics:
A - Eco-Toxicology of Nanomaterials
B - Nano-Bio Interactions and Uptake
C - Analytical Methods and Instrumentation
D - Release, Behavior and Fate in the Environment
E - Applications in the Environment
F - Modeling, Data Repositories and Nano-Informatics
G - Nano and Microplastics in the Aquatic Environment

The registration is now open. For more details visit: https://nano2019.univie.ac.at/home/

The Advanced Materials Show

The Advanced Materials Show - the very first in the series - will take place at The Telford International Centre (Shropshire, UK) from 10th – 11th July 2019. Spread over two action-packed days, The Advanced Materials Show will offer an insight into current and future materials development, with experts from all sides of the industry in attendance. The event provides a unique opportunity to meet with 200 suppliers of innovative materials and the entire R&D supply chain.

NanoFASE at the show: 

NanoFASE partner Selina Ambrose, Technical Manager at Promethean Particles is among the impressive line of speakers at the event. Selina will speak in a session titled "Nano Safety – Safe by Design", which will examine safety considerations and give real world, practical insight into manufacturing processes that can be put in place to ensure a safe environment for personnel, customers and end users. Full list of speakers is available here.

Registration and additional information is available on the official conference website.
