We are pleased to announce the Symposium “SAFETY ISSUES AND REGULATORY CHALLENGES OF NANOMATERIALS” taking place from the 3rd-4th May 2012 at CIC biomaGUNE, San Sebastián (Spain).
The Symposium is organized by the coordinators of four European FP7 Projects HINAMOX, NANOPOLYTOX, NEPHH and ENPRA, and by The Joint Research Centre (JRC) from the European Commission. The organizers are representing institutions actively working in the field of nanotechnology and nanosafety: CIC biomaGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain), LEITAT Technological Centre (Barcelona, Spain), Ekotek (Bilbao, Spain), The Institute of Occupational Medicine (Edinburgh, UK) and The Joint Research Centre (Ispra, Italy).

The Symposium will include scientific presentations from very well known scientists from the different disciplines involved in nanosafety and will include sessions on: Regulatory issues of nanomaterials, novel materials and new technologies, nanomaterials interactions with living systems, exposure andrisk assessment and end of life processes."
