Nanosafety Forum for Young Scientists"

From 8 - 9th October 2014 the NanoSafetyCluster is hosting a "Nanosafety Forum for Young Scientists" together with the project MODENA COST. The event will take place in Syracuse, Sicily and is aimed mainly at young researchers from EU-funded nanosafety projects.


The event is an open Forum for scientists in the nanosafety research field including scientific sessions with oral presentations from the young scientists and forward looking keynotes from established senior investigators. The goal is to exchange scientific information and visions and to enable young and senior scientists to learn to know each other.The presentations will be selected by the scientific programme committee from the submitted abstracts. The number of the participants is limited to 100, on a first come, first served basis. Deadline for abstract submission is June 15th 2014.

The registration fee amounts to €50 and all other expenses are to be paid by the participants (via the EU projects budgets, COST action money or national projects).


For further information on the event, registration & abstract submission please visit  http://www.nanosafetycluster.eu/news/113/66/Nanosafety-Forum-for-Young-Scientists-Focus-on-Health-Environment.html 


When: 8.-9. October 2014

Where: Syracuse, Sicily/Italy

Deadline for abstract submission: 15th june 2014
