BfR and Fraunhofer Symposium on Nanotechnology

Together with the Fraunhofer "Food Chain Management" Alliance and the Fraunhofer Alliance "Nanotechnology", the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) organises the 1st Joint Symposium on Nanotechnology on 5.–6. March 2015 at the BfR lecture hall in Berlin.

The integration of nanomaterials along the entire value chain creates new challenges and requires new approaches in terms of design, testability, reliability, and safety. At a two-day symposium, the status quo in application, research, and regulation will be presented. Besides the characterisation, the toxicology of nanomaterials will be in the focus. Furthermore, the societal acceptance of nanotechnology shall be discussed.
