Safety and Risks of Engineered Nanomaterials

Safety and Risks of Engineered Nanomaterials

23rd – 24th of October 2018
Quality Hotel View, Malmö, Sweden

For:

  • Graduate students interested in ENM safety
  • Professionals working in regulatory agencies and companies and working in either administration or workplaces.
  • The course would also be useful for any expert having duties associated with ENM safety

About this course

Engineered nanomaterials offer enormous potential in many areas of technology. The safety of ENM is the key to the success of several industrial sectors including electronics industry, consumer products, drug industry, food industry, paper industry, construction industry, aviation and space industry, and agriculture. However, without end users and customers’ confidence, nanotechnology has no future. There is need for additional research and knowledge on ENM that would enable setting of occupational exposure limits for these materials.

Course objectives

The main goal of the course is to provide the participants with information that allows them to understand key-issues related to ENM. More specifically, the purpose is to introduce the current knowledge about the characteristics of ENM, exposure to the materials and their health effects and also about the challenges of risk assessment and risk management concerning ENM at workplaces. One of the goals of the course is also to provide information on how to carry out predictive assessment of safety of ENM. The course will also provide information on the current hot topics in especially European approaches to promote safety of ENM.


General course fee information

Subject background

Engineered nanomaterials offer enormous potential in many areas of technology. The safety of ENM is the key to the success of several industrial sectors including electronics industry, consumer products, drug industry, food industry, paper industry, construction industry, aviation and space industry, and agriculture. However, without end users and customers’ confidence, nanotechnology has no future.

There is need for additional research and knowledge on ENM that would enable setting of occupational exposure limits for these materials. Considering the remarkable knowledge gaps on the safety of ENM methods and approaches enabling predictive assessment of their safety will be increasingly important in the future.
