SaferNano prepares tomorrow’s researchers, industrialists and regulators to take on the complex challenges posed by nanotechnology. Using a “safer-by-design” approach, involving the development of new methods of life-cycle assessment, SaferNano introduces highly motivated scientists and lawyers, nearing or at the end of their university education, to working in a pluridisciplinary and international environment. The school offers them a transformational opportunity to broaden their skills-sets in a range of fields including advanced research strategies, sustainable business planning, ethics and regulatory law.

The school’s intensive programme is constructed around a series of industrial and societal case studies, (silver nanowire, gender imbalance in exposure levels). The curriculum includes a range of core presentations delivered by world-class experts, followed by practical workshop, laboratory and computer sessions. Students work in pluridisciplinary groups on innovation projects which involve merging design thinking, entrepreneurship and legal and regulatory issues into a business plan. At the end, participants pitch their innovation ideas to a panel of experts from industry, academia, start-ups and business incubators.

By attending SaferNano, participants will acquire thorough understanding of current and future best practice in risk assessment, of the challenges and opportunities inherent to marketing nano-enabled products and of current and future public-health law in key nations and at the international level.
