About the School
The School aims to transfer state-of-the-art knowledge on a variety of topics from key experts to the new generation of professionals working in the areas of safety and sustainability of advanced (nano)materials. To this end, the School will deliver keynote lectures and will engage the participants in interprofessional training by means of roleplay and hands-on training exercises. The programme will balance experimental and modelling approaches in each of the School topics listed below.
The school will take place in the historic centre of Venice, Italy from 15 – 20 May 2022. It is hosted by the company GreenDecision in the frame of the EU Horizon 2020 project SUNSHINE and is co-organised and substantially contributed by the Horizon 2020 projects ASINA, SbD4Nano, SABYDOMA, SAbyNA, DIAGONAL, HARMLESS, NanoInformaTIX, NanoSolveIT, Gov4Nano, NanoRIGO, RiskGONE, NanoCommons, CHARISMA and the US Duke-led INFRAMES initiative.
