EuroScience Open Forum

InterNano - Upcoming Events - June 30, 2016 - 12:47pm
ConferenceSaturday, July 23, 2016 to Wednesday, July 27, 2016Manchester, UK http://www.esof.eu/home.html The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) is a biennial, pan-European, general science conference dedicated to scientific research and innovation. Each conference aims to deliver stimulating content and lively debate around the latest advancements and discoveries in the sciences, humanities and social sciences. ESOF brings together over 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from more than 90 countries, to discuss current and future breakthroughs in contemporary science. Now in its seventh iteration, ESOF attracts thousands of delegates to the host city during the week of the conference, which, in 2016, will be held between 23 and 27 July in Manchester. ESOF is one of the best opportunities for everyone from leading scientists, early careers researchers, business people, policy makers, science and technology communicators to the general public to come together to find out more about how science is helping us advance today.

The small matter of safety – responsible use of nanotechnology

InterNano - Upcoming Events - June 30, 2016 - 12:42pm
LectureWednesday, July 27, 2016 - 2:00pmhttp://www.esof.eu/the-programme/event-information/small-matter-of-safety.html http://Manchester Central Convention Complex, UK There are already thousands of nano-enabled products on the market but knowledge of the effects of engineered nanomaterials on human health and the environment is still insufficient. The small size of nanoparticles (< 100nm) present countless possibilities for developing the characteristics of products, but at the same time may make them toxic if they penetrate the skin or enter the human blood circulation via the lungs. How can consumers and workers be exposed to nanomaterials and what are the risks? How can we promote the safe and sustainable use of nanomaterials? We will explore the responsible use of nanotechnologies and how it is crucial for the success and commercialisation of nanoproducts and for maintaining public trust.
