Towards Nanotech Safety
13-15 November 2018
Clarion Hotel Post, Gothenburg
Welcome to this Mistra Environmental Nanosafety Conference
We are organizing this conference to summarize and reflect on the results from our research program's first four years, and to discuss the generation of a sustainable risk management strategy for nanomaterials in the future. Our aim is to enable risk assessment strategies for nanomaterial's impact on the environment.
Confirmed speakers, to date
Mark R Wiesner
James B. Duke Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University, USA. Wiesner's research interests include membrane processes, nanostructured materials, transport and fate of nanomaterials in the environment, colloidal and interfacial processes, and environmental systems analysis.
Begoña Espiña is the Leader of the Water Quality Research Group within the Department of Life Sciences at INL, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, Portugal. Dr. Espiña focuses her research on developing biosensors based on nanomaterials for capture of chemical contaminants in water as well as developing methods for nanomaterials’ fate, bioaccumulation and toxicity.
