Nano-Training School in Venice
2022-05-15 to 20 · Martin Himly from the Bio-Nano Group co-organizes the traditional Nano-Training School in Venice, IT where >150 attendees, many of them early in their career (PhD students, PostDocs), met in the grand old Auditorio Santa Margherita for an entire week to safety and sustainability issues of nano-sized and advanced materials provided by experts in the field. This included also nanomedical carriers, food ingredients and contact materials, so lots of discussions and interactive training on life cycle aspects in line with the EU Chemical Strategy for Sustainability and Green Deal was going on. From the PLUS team (besides Martin Himly also Sabine Hofer and Norbert Hofstätter were involved) sessions were organized into human hazard and exposure assessment & modelling, data FAIRness and risk governance.
