Nanosafety Training School: From Basic Science To Risk Governance 2021

This year the Venice Nano Training School, organised within the EU funded Horizon 2020 projects BIORIMA, GRACIOUS, NanoInformaTIX, PATROLS, NANORIGO, RiskGONE and Gov4Nano will take place in San Servolo (Venice, Italy) 20th – 25th June 2021, providing additionally a live-streaming of the event, for the participants that will not be able to travel. It celebrates its 10th anniversary and joints in one week-event the Interprofessional Education Training School & the 4th NanoSafety Forum for Young Scientists.

The School will feature keynote speeches, hands-on sessions and a dedicated Young Scientist Forum Day during which early career researchers (PhD students, PhD candidates and Post-Docs) will have the opportunity to present their work.

The School week will include a variety of hands-on sessions aimed to transfer state-of-the-art knowledge on a variety of topics from key experts to the new generation of nano-environmental, health and safety, and biomedicine professionals, using interprofessional education.

A variety of networking activities (a special 10th anniversary welcome cocktail, social event and a social dinner) will enable plenty of time and opportunities for you to widen your network and foster academic exchange.

Become part of an interactive, exciting week and enrich your knowledge by developing multidisciplinary expertise!
