Nanosafety Training School: From Basic Science To Risk Governance
San Servolo Island, (Venice – Italy)

The School will feature keynote speeches, hands-on sessions and a dedicated Young Scientist Forum Day (22nd March) during which early career researchers (PhD students, PhD candidates and Post-Docs) will have the opportunity to present their work.

The School week will include a variety of hands-on sessions aimed to transfer state-of-the-art knowledge on a variety of topics from key experts to the new generation of nano-environmental, health and safety, and biomedicine professionals, using inter-professional education.

A variety of networking activities (a special 10th anniversary welcome cocktail, social event and a social dinner) will enable plenty of time and opportunities for you to widen your network and foster academic exchange.

The topics of the school will be:

  • Hazard to Human Health & Environment
  • Fate & Exposure Assessment
  • Nanomedicine: from the lab to the market
  • Modelling
  • Grouping & Read Across Approaches
  • Risk Governance

Early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their work in the form of oral and poster presentations. You can choose between the following themes:

  • State of the art approaches and challenges towards nanomaterial characterisation
  • Strategies towards testing ENM toxicology (human and environmental)
  • Modelling approaches towards ENM toxicology
  • Risk assessment and legal regulation of ENM
  • Approaches towards defining human and environmental exposure to EN
