Nanomaterials can potentially play a key role in reducing our dependence on extracted raw materials. But how do we assess the potential risk posed by the long-term accumulation of nanoparticles to the environment and to human health? Over 6 demanding days, this exciting course introduces young scientists and engineers to the tools and strategies required to take up the safer-by-design challenge. These are simultaneously put into practice by the participants in interdisciplinary groups, tasked with designing the business model of a nano-enabled innovation project.
The Safer Nanomaterials spring school is an accelerated learning programme proposed by EIT Raw Materials, partner institutions and the European Scientific Institute (ESI).
