Message from the Organising Committee

Update as of November 2020

Dear all,

Thank you for your patience at this time.

After a careful consideration we have come to the decision that the Nano Safety Training school will take place in 20-25 June 2021. In order to allow more participation in the cases in which attendees will not be able to travel we are provisioning live-streaming of the event.

The event will take the same format as planned and accepted participants will not lose their seat.

If you have any questions about this update, please do not hesitate to contact us!
