NanoSafety 2017

From October 11th-13th 2017, Saarbrucken in Germany will be hosting the second edition of the Conference "Nanosafety 2017". The event is organised by the Leibniz Research Alliance Nanosafety that deals with safety and security issues concerning nanomaterials and nanoproducts.


Nanotechnologies are considered as key enabling technologies. Their applications are based on effects arising from the promising properties and structure of the building blocks of nanomaterials. Sustainable development and implementation of these technologies demand: Safe production and usage of nanomaterials, detailed understanding of interactions between nanoobjects and living organisms and knowledge transfer of scientific results to support socially relevant aspects.



Conference Topics:

  • Safe by design
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Nanomaterials: effects and mechanisms
  • Safe biomedical applications
  • Quantification and detection of nanoobjects
  • Regulatory issues and long term studies
  • Environmental exposure pathways


  • Further information on the conference (program, participation, etc.) can be found online via


WHEN: 11 – 13 October 2017

WHERE: Saarbrucken, Germany (

Important Deadlines:

  • Abstract Submission: 01st July 2017
