SweNanoSafe National Workshop on Research and Education

SweNanoSafe invited researchers within the field of nanosafety, or with an interest in nanosafety, to a one-day workshop on research and education. The participants of the workshop discussed research needs and implementation of results for the regulation, development and safe use of nanomaterials.

The event also served as kick-off for a national network of researchers active within areas important for the implementation of different aspects of nanosafety. The network has been initiated by the SweNanoSafe Project Team and the Expert Panel.

You can find the program for the workshop here.
