The NANODEVICE project partners and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health invite you to the “International Congress on Safety of Engineered Nanoparticles and Nanotechnologies” to be held on 28–31 October 2012 in Helsinki, Finland.
The goal of the SENN2012 Congress is to summarize and share the latest knowledge on the safety of engineered nanomaterials and nano-related technologies. The emphasis is on producing solutions to the safety challenges related to engineered nanomaterials and nanotechnologies. Another aim is to enable commercial opportunities for the safe use of these materials and technologies.
The Congress will provide a forum for reporting and demonstrating findings, methods, tools, and approaches to safety and health at workplaces using nanoparticles and nanotechnologies. The plenary and free communication sessions will be designed to facilitate interaction between participants and presenters.
We anticipate an exciting and productive congress in October 2012, and look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.
Aim of the Congress
The goal of the SENN2012 Congress is to examine and discuss safe practices in handling nanomaterials; to promote nanosafety at work with an emphasis on detection methods, tools, and safer production processes; and to improve the understanding of the biological basis of nanosafety.
Who does the Congress benefit?
Researchers in occupational safety and health; experts in toxicology, material sciences, measurement technologies, risk assessment, management, and communication; policy-makers; device developers; safety managers; administrators in the nanosafety field (e.g. safety standards); and representatives of industry-related research and development.
