Nanosafety Training School - From Basic Science to Risk Governance

Interprofessional Education Training School GOES VIRTUAL NOW

21 - 25 June 2021, Venice, Italy

The Training School, organised within the EU funded Horizon 2020 projects BIORIMA, GRACIOUS, NanoInformaTIX, PATROLS, NANORIGO, RiskGone and Gov4Nano will take place virtually 21st - 25th June 2021.

Key Note Lectures 

Georgios Katalagarianakis, former European Commission 

"Let's celebrate: Eleven years of the Venice Training School, sixteen years of European Nanosafety Research. History, Lessons learned and Perspectives" 

Steffi Friedrichs, AcumenIST 

"Concepts of sustainable Nanofabrication" 

From Nanosafety to Nanomedicine: a 10-year Perspective 

Bengt Fadeel, Karolinska Institutet 

The lecture will provide a perspective on nanosafety research conducted in the past decade and provide a view to the application of nanomaterials in medicine (aka nanomedicine). The speaker has been involved in several EU-funded and national projects focused on nanosafety including MARINA and BIORIMA as well as the EU-funded Graphene Flagship. Focus on lessons learned from these projects with emphasis on the synthetic and biological “identities” of nanomaterials and interactions of nanomaterials with biological systems.
