Safety issues of Nanomaterials along their life cycle - Symposium

Safety issues of Nanomaterials along their life cycle is a two days Symposium that will be held on the 4th and 5th May 2011 at LEITAT Technological Center, Barcelona (Spain). It is jointly organized by the coordinators of three European FP7 Projects NANOPOLYTOX, NEPHH and HINAMOX. The organizers are representing three Spanish institutions actively working in the field of nanotechnology: LEITAT Technological Centre (Barcelona), Ekotek (Bilbao) and CIC BiomaGUNE (San Sebastian), respectively.

The aim of the Symposium is to discuss about the human and environmental impacts of nanomaterials along their life cycle from their production through their processing, use, and end of life (recycling and/or disposal). Therefore, the tools and methodologies proposed for the risk assessment (RA) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of nanomaterials will be one of the main topics of discussion in this symposium. A panel of experts at international level have been invited as speakers and lectures will be organized into six different sessions:

  • Session 1. International, national and regional initiatives on Nanotechnology / Nanosafety
  • Session 2. Nanomaterials: Synthesis, characterization and applications
  • Session 3. Human health impact of Nanomaterials
  • Session 4. Environmental impact of Nanomaterials
  • Session 5. Risk assessment of Nanomaterials
  • Session 6. Life cycle assessment of Nanomaterials

This Scientific Program will be complemented with a poster session thus allowing the presentation of relevant scientific outcomes in the areas above.

Nanosafety Cluster WG meetings will take place in the same venue on the 6th of May with brainstorming in the different areas of Nanosafety. Further information on these meetings can be found in the corresponding section of this website.
