Understanding the environmental, health and safety implications of manufactured nanomaterials to foster their sustainable applications.

The achievement of safe nanoproducts requires an understanding of the properties, biological interactions, fate, risks and environmental impacts of manufactured nanomaterials. The Sustainable Nanotechnology School aims to transfer the state of the art knowledge on these aspects from key experts to the new generation nano environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals. In order to do so the school will highlight the best available experimental and modeling approaches and practices for physicochemical characterization, (eco)toxicity testing, exposure, risk, and lifecycle assessment of nanotechnologies, taking various stakeholder perspectives and ethical issues into account. The course is structured to balance breadth and depth in these diverse topics, as well as build an integrative understanding of them, while providing an interactive learning environment and direct access to key experts from Europe and the United States. The Sustainable Nanotechnology School is organized in the frame of the major EU FP7 projects SUN and GUIDEnano and the MODENA Cost Action.
